Last year I was determined to refashion a men's dress shirt into a skirt. I scavenged thrift shops looking for XXL bargains that would become the most wondrous of summer skirts but once getting home realized that all the shirts I found would never properly cover all my hips/thighs/bum to my liking and the project went on the back burner. Alas. Luckily I came across another shirt refashioning project online - and this time I don't have to worry about how skimpy it may turn out! Check out the adorable bow tie shirt upcycle project from Extra Petite (link):
Isn't it adorable? Collared shirts are all the rave right now and that matching bowtie/ascot is the perfect touch of feminine meets structure! Eep! I've even managed to finish up five (that's right - FIVE) little sewing alteration projects I've been putting off all summer so my machine (and my mental state) are ready to tackle something new! Woo hoo! What do you think? Are you ready to join me in the perfect fall refashion project?
