Denim Shirt Refashion

Because who doesn't love a good ol' refashion, right?

I feel like this refashion really captures the essence of how much of a piece of trash I am. Like....I actually made the whole thing almost a year ago, but didn't get around to photographing it until just recently. I know, I know, I am garbage. But I'm okay with that. Because who honestly has that kind of control over their life, right? Right? Ehhhhhh...

But anyway, here is the pièce de résistance:

And it isn't even that huge of a deal of a refashion. Like, I literally have no excuse as to why I didn't photograph this. I'm so sorry, I AM UNWORTHY.

My saving grace though is that I did take pictures along the way while making this, so at least I can explain what I did. I first started by putting the shirt on and pinning a line at my natural waist so that I could chop the top of the shirt from the bottom.

I then removed the pocket...

...and the sleeves. (Look, you can even tell how old this picture is. That's def the carpet from my old apartment from school last year.)

I then took a little more off the the sleeves and pinned where I wanted to take the shirt in at the sides before sewing in my new side seams and finishing off the new arm holes.

Finally, I pleated the bottom part of the shirt so that it was the same length as the top part of the shirt before attaching the two together ( I also decided to do some hemming of that bottom portion so that it didn't fray.)

So this was super quick, super simple, but I feel like it was a pretty legit improvement. Even if the original said "80's pinpoint" on the inside, I don't know what that means, but I'm on board for whatever that entails.

  3. This looks like a great idea. My 15 year old granddaughter was just this weekend asking me to refashion a shirt for her. Thanks for the idea.
