A Summer-y Red Shirt Refashion

A red shirt. I needed a red shirt earlier this summer. While I had a red shirt in my closet it wasn't summer-y enough for my tastes, thus I took my need of a red shirt as an excuse to refashion one.

I started with this red linen shirt that my friend let me have out of her donation bag. I did some seam ripping, cutting, pleating and re-sewing to turn this shirt into what I had in mind.

A summer-y red shirt!

This shirt has gotten plenty of wear this summer! To see my step-by-step process, and find out why I needed a red shirt, check out my full blog post!
