Sooooo... I'd been hanging onto bits of this old shirt of mine for years because it had a cute pattern and I liked the shape of the collar, and also the fabric is of a nice quality. (Also I have a wee bit of a hoarding problem.) But anyway, I'd long since chopped pieces out of it (mostly sleeves and a bit of middle) to make baby bibs for my kids. For this refashion, I frankensteined the leftovers together with a fat quarter that just happened to match the colour perfectly, and pow!
I kept the collar and the bottom of the original shirt, mostly because I hate hemming and collar-ing. My sincere apologies for the lack of before pictures, I honestly wasn't expecting this one to turn out and wasn't planning on it being a blog post! Next time I will resist the urge to serge before snapping a pic ;)
Thanks for reading,
