The Upcycle Circle
My MIL had a box of clothing she was giving away, so... I raided it! Then I had a magical idea. Here are seven shirts I pulled. For each shirt I upcycle I will use the remnants of a different shirt to finish or embellish it.
Enter.... THE UPCYCLE CIRCLE!!! So, for each shirt I will use the remnants of the shirt to it's right! Going around in a circle!!! Are you ready?
This one is so simple.... Here is the collared shirt and some remnants from the old sweatpants.
I sliced the top off, going past where the original line was for the shoulder.
I trimmed some strips from the sweatpants.
I sewed a casing along the top of the shirt and threaded the sweatpants tie through. I did sew it into place at the opening where the casing was. I HATE when my hoodies get the cord all jacked up! lol
Using the rest of the sweatpants I ruffled the fabric and found 2 big buttons to create a belt. The tie is the old sweatpants tie!
Whatdaya think? It's a little short, but.. I think it would look soooo cute with a white lace cami underneath!
Here is the back!
