Lately I’ve been trying to work with recycled/re-purposed and remnant fabrics in an effort to be more environmentally friendly. I found a huge lot of XL men’s shirts and really wanted to do something constructive with them. I cut these shirts apart using an old tube top pattern I drafted a few years ago. I originally drafted the pattern for knits so I had to make it larger. I sewed the center plackets shut so that the buttons won’t spread apart and added elastic to the top seams so they will stay in place.
I made the shoulder straps out of the shirt and replaced the dull bottons with fabric covered buttons to make the top look a little more girly.
