Striped Men's Shirt Upcycle

Added Sep 25, 2009

Prairie Ronde, L...






I made this from a striped men’s shirt I found in a bag of old clothes my great aunt was going to donate to Goodwill. I used Maryy’s hot hot heat technique for the bust and a single hook and eye closure for the back. It was really simple and fun to make!!

    Wow, this really looks great! Who would have thought this once was a boring old men’s shirt? Good idea to add the dark blue band under the bust. A very inspiring creation!
