It's a quick and funny project.
I have asked Silvia if I may write a short tutorial about it and she kindly approved.
Here is my version:
- one shirt (if it is used, the front should be in good shape)
- scraps of fabrics
- sewing machine
- scissors, water soluble pen or tailor chalk, pins
- one safety pin
|I folded the shirt in half. I cut out the front.|
|On the back, the cutting followed a curved line finished up at about 4" down from the shirt's neckline.|
|I drew a line along the neckline.|
|I cut out the collar following the drawn line.|
|I verified if the new neckline needs some corrections.|
|I added the binding on the raw edge and stitched the two straps.|
|I made a bow tie and I placed it on the shirt with the safety pin. I played a little and embroidered a label with his monogram and stitched it above the chest pocket.|
It was very well received.
Thank you, Silvia, for this brilliant idea and for the permission to post the tutorial!
Have a beautiful day, my dears!
