Remember the men's shirts I snagged at Salvation Army last week? I decided to work with the blue checked one, which was $2.99 initial investment.
It's a very nice quality shirt - Polo by Ralph Lauren. First I cut off the collar and the sleeves.
The I used some scrap quilting fabric I had on hand to make bias binding. I used this to finish the neck and armholes. Love the complementary colors!
I fitted the shirt to a woman's contours and added a sash made from the complementary fabric.
I made the back of the shirt into the new front, so all I have left to do is remove the pocket!
Even though the pocket still needs to be removed, I already wore the top out to do some errands. Very comfy, and nicer looking than my usual T. I'm pretty pleased with the outcome, but even if it was too "altered" for your tastes, you could wear it as a crafting or kitchen coverall! What do you think?
