My husband had a shirt that he did not like, so I re styled it for me.
Things you need
- Old men's shirt
- Chain (I used 14 inches)
- Sewing machine
- Needle and thread
Turn your shirt inside out and lay it flat.
Take a shirt you already have that fits you perfect and lay that on top of your shirt.
This will be your pattern.
Trace around it.
mark with chalk where you traced.
Pin your shirt.
* I would carefully try on your shirt at this point to make sure that it will fit the way you want.
Using your sewing machine sew where you placed your pins.
Trim the excess
I marked my shirt around the seams.
*You do not want to make this to be to big or it will show body parts you may not want to be seen.
cut the marked place out
Fold down the bottom flap and sew this as well.
Repeat on the other side.
I marked and measured 7 inches of chain and attached it to my shoulder buckle
(* If you do not have a buckle on your shirt, you could use a pretty ribbon
or a smaller chain and just hand sew it to the shoulder.)
Using my needle and thread I attached the other end of the chain to the shirt
right at the end of the pocket. The pocket was a guide so that both sides would be even.
I also let the rest of the chain just hang loose.
Now you have a re-styled, kind of edgy shirt.
That shows just a touch of skin.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
Lots of <3,
