Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Men's button down refashion #3

Ok here is my 2nd attempt with refashioning a men's shirt. It was another light cream that I dyed with RIT dye in scarlet, I got a peachy coral. Just like my other men's shirt. :)


I cut off the top part of shirt, in addition to the sleeves.

I hemmed the armholes to finish it up.

Next I folded down the top of the shirt to make a casing.

I had some peach and white striped fabric that I made a tube with (actually refashioned from a pair of stained pants that I somehow wound up with from someone??) I wove the tube through all the casings.

I hate the bottom of men's shirts. I like it straight! What is up with the curved bottoms?? Seriously? So I cut it off and hemmed it.

Basically I created a pillowcase-like top for myself out of a man's shirt. I decided to tie the bow in the center of the shirt. I can always change my mind.

XOXOXO,
Lauren
