Garments don’t come much more classic than a simple white shirt, right? In this, the first of several posts this month sharing what YOU’VE been been making, here are a just a few of the white shirt refashions popping up on IG and Pinterest (you guys are getting shirty f’real!!)…
If you know my style then you’ll know Kate’s refashion is right up my street. Simple shape. Comfy fit. But there’s a little more to this refashion than meets the eye both in terms of the base garment and the little details and finishes. The devil is in the detail right?
Ah Casey! I begged Casey to tag this make for The Refashioners 2015. She’s been refashioning for years (long before I learnt to sew) and was one of the first participants in the first ever series of The Refashioners. I LOVE the simplicity of this white top. A simple idea but as ever, well conceived and perfectly executed. (I totally just fan girled you then Casey, sorry, lol!) There’s a full tute too…It’s not actually made from a men’s shirt (and hence not submitted for the prize package before anyone yelps) BUT I wanted to share it here because it totally could be a method for dealing with too large armholes on those shirts right??!
Cristina hadn’t been on my radar. (That’s the thing about challenges like this! You get to find all kinds of new peops!) Well she’s firmly on my radar now after this amazing bit of refashioning. It seems the lady has some mad draping and drafting skills. You should check out some of her tutorials! Plus no sooner am I writing this she’s just posted another white shirt refashion….
Men’s formal evening shirts DO have the most awesome detailing on the bib. And when you’re gifted something like that in a garment then showcasing that is only right! And it’s done beautifully in this refashion by Lara…
There are not enough superlatives to describe how awesome I think this is. I mean….a bee keeping outfit!!!! I absolutely did not see this one coming!!
