recycled kimono sleeved shirt

Added Jan 21, 2009

Prescott, Arizon...






I found this weird shirt at a thrift store.It had a strange shawl collar and was to tight on me.So i decided to get it and make something else with it. It was a kind of soft material that I liked so I bought it for one dollar!

The shawl became the sleeves.One original sleeve became a extension of the torso part and the other original sleeves lengthen the whole thing. I left a little unsewn for a cute little side tie.

Material Notes

Fake cashmere, but just as soft!





Me!!! and my hubby for advise

    Wow! What a great job you did! I love everything about it and would have snapped it up at a store. Your tailoring is so well done for such a soft fabric.
