summer top from hubbies shirt

Added Feb 18, 2014

Portsmouth, Unit...






Rich always puts his old shirts on my fabric box…I made this summer top from one if his cast offs. It was a long sleeve shirt, giving me more fabric to play with. It’s a summer top with simple straps. I used the shirt front for the back of my top and left the buttons on. Now we need an early summer! A quick, easy project.

Material Notes

Cotton shirt




Garment Type
