A new shoot at men shirt refashion - a jumpsuit for Eva - Ottobre 3/2015 #14

Refashion sound like such a fun game to play ... how to resist it even with my huge stash. I wanted to go with a different shirt my DH ruined at one sleeve but he rescued it at the last minute.
He asked me why not use of the the new fabrics I bought - I have some really cute think denim that might really work great with it so I might do one more - specially since now I have more inside on how this fits in woven...
 I used Ottobre 3/2015 #14 jumpsuit with a little extra width and length in the lower legs and now I wish I would have added some for knees as well.

I added a collar and facings to finish the neck line and I didn't do the scooped back though it might have been cute with dome string tie but I wanted the 3rd button to fit in since I kept the buttons closure for the back and not is finally easy to dress.
We took it for a test drive:


  1. Wow, to go from baby girl in dress up clothes to this jumpsuit--wow! What a spectacular refashion. I missed that you added the collar in your review--did you draft it yourself? It fits so perfectly and creates an excellent focal point.

    1. Thanks! I drafted the collar myself I just folded the back yoke of the shirt in 2. It was doubled so I had 4 layers of fabric and traced the neck line with the shoulder seam sewed then just added the collar as much as the fabric allowed! It turned out quite OK. I was a little nervous about it!

  2. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!overalls for men
