Description

I made this top by cutting five old t-shirts to pieces and putting them together again to make a new fabric to sew from. I zig zag-ed (sorry, I’m not a native english speaker) the pieces together with a stretch seam. Apart from making the sleeves narrower, I followed the Burda pattern.

Material Notes

Five old soft cotton t-shirts.

      Thanks, I’m glad to hear :), especially since I’m new in sewing. I love upcycling projects too, am wondering what to make next out of old clothes :).
