I made this shirt out of 4 other shirts my boyfriend was throwing out. I used one shirt as a basis, but reset the sleeves and widened the neckline. In other words, no seam remained untouched :)
It looks like a puzzle, and it was a bit puzzling to put together because I cut the pieces the wrong way around at first, mirroring the grey shirt. This happens to me a lot, I need to use more brains when sewing! It turned out ok though, after recutting the blue piece.
