Every 2-4 months I go through all my clothes and find piles of stuff I don’t wear anymore that I give away. I feel like things come in and out of style so fast, it’s hard to keep up. I want to buy stuff that will last, that’s versatile, and comfortable. So I have started on a little quest to find or make clothing that matches that criteria and the refashion I have today fits just that.
It all began with a huge shirt from Savers that I purchased for $1.00.
It ended up as one of my new favorite things to wear.
Just check out the options!
1. As a long tunic for summer with shorts or skinny jeans.
2. As a long tunic for fall with a scarf, boots, a belt, and leggings.
3. Tied up as a layering shirt.
4. As a maternity shirt (Yes, I did stuff my belly for the picture above. That was definitely a first.)
5. Tucked into a skirt with a high waist.
6. As a shirt with a thick belt to create an hourglass shape.
7. Layered under a cardigan.
8. Worn unbuttoned like a vest, with a belt.
1. Remove sleeves. I just cut them right off where they connected with the shoulders.
2. Take in the side seams. I took it in about 2 inches toward the top, then tapered down to about 1 cm on the bottom.
3. Hem where the sleeves were removed.
4. Optional–cinched the new sleeves to make them lay flatter against the arm.
