I been wanting to some refashioning lately and have the ideas I just need to buy a few things first. So annoying when you're all ready to refashioning something only to realize you can't because you don't have (fill in the blank here). That means today I just going to be posting a quick refashion I did a while ago.
|Before my very big shirt|
When I'm thinking of ideas for refashioning something I often make elaborate plans but sometimes simple is better. Like with this t-shirt I had, it's a very plain extra large t-shirt with no details. I was making all these complicated plans for refashioning it until I though all I need is tank tops so let's make that. So that what I did, I dumped my elaborate plans and made a simple one. Make this t-shirt into a tank top.
|Cutting off the sleeves|
Once I knew what to do things went relatively fast, I cut off the sleeves. Then I took in my side seams making sure to line up the hem. It was looking great, but a bit long and the neckline was a bit low so I ended up taking in the shoulders as well. I lined the shoulders up with the neckline so the armhole was off and I had to re-cut it.Then since it was a knit shirt, I simply folded the raw edges under and finished it with a twin needle. And that was it.
My favorite thing about this project is that it exactly what I need right now and something I can get a lot of wear a lot. If you want to see more of me, you can see the original post here or if you would like to check out my blog click here.
