Ex-Boyfriend's Shirt - Recycled

Added Oct 22, 2008

by bkwormdeb

Norman, Oklahoma...






When my ex and I split he took half my dvd’s and I got two of his shirts. I wanted to turn something that made me sad and mopey into something cute and flirty.
I have very ample hips, so I used some of the excessive length to flesh out the hip area, and to make little sleeves to cover the post relationship pudge that accumulated on my arms. I removed the collar and added it back to the front after I’d made the shift. Since the shape of the neck no longer forced a curve on the collar, I tacked the collar over with loose stitches.

Material Notes

Thread and an ex’s shirt.

    Way to go, girl! It looks great on you and that’s certainly a very creative (dare I say cathartic?!) way of cleaning out the closet! Well done!
