I was so smitten with her chemise très écologique that I just had to make one for myself…(with an added tweak or two of course)
Read on for the über creative quick how-to…
Grab a large manly dress shirt from your stash (as I had already chopped the arms for a previous project I snagged some knee socks to extend them)
slice off the collar as close to the seam as possible
onto Cristina’s fabulously clever idea: flip the shirt upside down & centre the collar on the bottom hem
hem the raw edge of the former neckline (now the bottom of the shirt)
and my fave sassy sleeve addition: Chop off the sock feet, pop the length over the chopped sleeves right sides facing & raw edges lined up
& slip into your quirky new wrap top!
*wear wrapped & buttoned around your bod’
*or with just the collar buttoned up
*or as an easy breezy cardi!
A huge Merci Beaucoup to Cristina for sharing her amazing projects! I will be trying her absolutely awesome denim refashions next…now go take a peek at In the Mood for Couture & don’t forget to show that like-y love too!
