Button-Down Six; The Linen One

Hello Refashion Co-op. This is my last button-down refashion for a while. I had fun with them, but I got to the end of my button-down stash. This shirt was a very heavy linen. It felt too heavy to be a shirt. It almost felt like a jacket.


I wanted to make a pair of shorts. My inspiration was this video. I cut off the shoulders and the arms. I used the arms to add on to the fabric from the body. I needed a wider piece of fabric.

 

I folded the fabric over and made a shorts shape. Then I stitched them together and added an elastic waist.


I love the loose fit, they are so comfortable.

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.

Super cute! They look like they'll be cool and comfy for summer. I have a linen shirt in my refash stash that I'm thinking might find themselves converted to shorts soon too. Thanks for the inspiration!
