New Life for an Old Shirt

Girls from Art-Piaskownica thought of another very interesting project! This time we have to recycle an old shirt for the Recycle Challenge! And it's not that easy as it sounds!

I bought a nice old shirt in a second hand, size 46 so it was a bit too big as you can see below.
I decided to cut off the sleeves :)
And I left the shirt without them because I have no idea how to sew them back after narrowing!
Then from the cut sleeves I sewed a long stripe, which you cas see below the collar :)
The best thing about this shirt is that you can wear it in many ways. Sorry for the bad photos below but it was too cold to stand outside longer and make photos.. brrr!!
I still have to improve it a little because it's a bit too tight at the top and a bit too wide in the middle..
I don't really know how to sew nor narrow clothes, but I think this project was quite interesting! I'm very thankful for Art-Piaskownica's girls for taking me to the design team.. they are such a great inspiration and motivation for me! I would never remake a shirt without this Recycle Challenge!!

I hope you like this project too!

Have a wonderful and inspiring day,
marysza
