Castro Valley, U...
One of my favorite things to do is garment reconstruction…here are 3 of the men’s work shirts I’ve done. I think my favorite is the pull-over shirt (I cut the bottom off, turned it around and sewed it back on…easy as pie!) 2 of the shirts already had hand embroidery details that I had done years ago, so I just added a little machine embroidery detail. To achieve the mandrin collar, I simply removed the shirt collar, and re-sewed the neck band.
