Refashion men shirt - lekala 4109
I love refashion projects. I am always amazed by some people ingenuity and the transformations. So I always make plans to try it myself. When my husband decided to give up this shirt I wanted to work on it right away. I love its fabric and the pockets are so nicely done. I used Lekala 4109 that I wanted to make in woven anyway. I reworked the shoulder line this time before adding sleeves and it is much better.
Maybe the pocket placement ended up a bit weird. It may have been better if I made the shirt shorter and I may not had to struggle so much for the fabric... but after all this is my 1st attempt to refashion a men shirt and I am proud of the result.
It is a comfortable shirt and quite unique. And I will do better next time. this is definitely a fun project to tackle.
mini wardrobe I did for him last summer. One of my favorite items ever made.
