Men's shirt refashion

This shirt had been in my refashion pile for some time.

I adapted it into a new top with the help of a pattern.

I thought I could use the pattern to cut out the shoulders and neckline and keep the rest of the shirt intact. It was going to be one of those back becomes the front adaptations, keeping the button placket as a feature.

This pattern features a broad neckband piece, good for using some contrast fabric.

I couldn't decide whether to add arms or not, the weather was so hot when I was sewing it.

In the end I went for the arms.

Here is the finished product:
