The Classic Tailored Shirt »
InstructionsThis shirt is a size 3, the others were size 2. To me this looks a bit big but mother is happy as it will fit next year.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Classic, Cute
Two shirts from a thrift store.
What was your inspiration?
I was looking for shirts at the thrift store that had interesting buttons that I could reuse and thought the stripy material would make a nice shirt for my nephew - then I got a lime green linen shirt to make the matching shorts
What are you most proud of?
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Reusing the front band complete with buttons and button holes from the original shirt saves alot of time - I buttoned the shirt fronts together the wrong way (so they lay flat together) and cut out both at the same time to ensure the buttons and button holes would line up on the new shirt.
