I'm in the midst of a few (few - adj. from the refashioner's English for "many" or "oh my goodness so many") other projects, but I thought I'd pick something new (and easy) to get my creative juices flowing. I was gifted this shirt earlier this month, and it fits the bill.
Let's get started!
First, I removed the pockets, and unpicked the side seams. Then I removed the sleeves.
See ya, sleeves!
Which left me with a long rectangle of fabric with a hole for my head and raw edges along the long sides.
I pressed, pinned, and sewed the long edges....
... and then folded the shirt in half "hamburger style," as they said at my elementary school.
Finally, I sewed a straight line from the bottom to about 8 inches from the top, roughly 4 inches from each side. (Along the dashed line in the diagram above.)
And that was it! See? I told you it was easy.
