When 4 become 1

Added Jun 26, 2012

Groningen, Nethe...






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.

    Great job! I’ve been wanting to do something like this for a while, but I’m always afraid I’ll mess it up somehow! Thanks for being the pioneer and proving that it is possible! :^D

      It’s not only possible, it’s fairly easy! Just don’t forget to think about right and wrong sides…

    love the colour mix! I also suffer from lack of 3-dimensional-imagination…or is it called mirror-effect? ;))

      I don’t know but I am puzzled by it every time :)

      Thanks! The placement was accidental, but it turned out well!
