Men's Flannel Shirt Refashion to a Vest

I grew up cuddling up to my dad who was always wearing a flannel shirt. And now I get to sort through those old flannels and get creative with refashions. This men's shirt refashion turned a quilted flannel shirt into a reversible vest. (Get the full details here)

BEFORE
The original flannel shirt was an XXL so there was plenty of fabric to play with and adjust to my size.

Changes made:
  • The collar was removed
  • Sleeves removed
  • Sides were taken in for a more feminine fit
  • Buttons were replaced with larger buttons and placed on both the inside and outside
  • Side pockets were created using the extra flannel fabric
  • All edges were finished with bias tape

BONUS: It's reversible!

Since this flannel shirt was quilted, it was ready to be reversible and show the quilting on the outside. This is my favorite was to wear this refashion.
