T-SHIRT REFASHION: Finally! Color block!

Feel special because I am posting a refashion that I haven't even posted on my own blog! All these pretty and talented contributors at Refashion Co-op have made me feel lazy by posting more than once a month! Overachievers.  ;)


Not to mention, everyone's refashions have been amazingly inspiring and beautiful. So, here I am trying to be an overachiever like the rest of you. For the longest time, I've been wanting to create a cute color block shirt because other DIYers make the process look so simple and awesome!


I found three T-shirts that needed a little bit of jazz. I took one of the gray T-shirts and made a straight cut underneath sleeve seam. I took the olive T-shirt and made the same cut. However, I ran into a small issue -- the olive shirt was slightly larger than the white one.


I gathered the extra fabric in bits and pieces and hand sewn the small hole shut. The gathering created small pleats and bumps, but I can live with the minor imperfection since it's pretty small and in the armpit area.

I like the colour combination you have in the "new" tee shirt.
