REMADE GREY T-SHIRT
So yesterday I went through my closet and put everything into piles of what to keep and what to give away or sell at a flea market. It turned out that I also had a pile of stuff I wanted to remake!I had this t-shirt of mixed grey shades which I thought was quite boring, so I decided to make it into a top instead.
As you can see it's just a plain grey t-shirt with rolled up sleeves and a pocket on the chest. Initially I thought the location of the pocket might become an issue because I wanted to have a very open sleeve. Therefore I decided to just cut through the pocket aswell and let the pocket follow the line of the shirt. What I did:
- Cut the sleeves of, leaving extra fabric to take up the sides and give it a nice finish
- Take up the sides and sew along the "sleeves"
- Finally I took in the sides to make the top tight and follow my body shape.
The daylight was much better when I took the "after" photos, so despite the fact that this shirt now looks like a much lighter grey, it is in fact the same shirt :D
As you can see it is now a top and not a t-shirt, and the pocket is no longer a square on the chest, but an integreted part of the "sleeve"
VERY easy to make and I would imagine you could do this with any old shirt you have in the back of your closet.
