Description

I recently decided to recycle an old polo-shirt that I bought a million years ago for a family activity holiday. I turned it back to front, cut off the sleeves and collar, add a few darts around the waist area and hey presto. I added a collar in contrasting black, made from the scraps of another old t-shirt. My favourite part is the button detailing at the back.
