I really have a fix on men's shirts right now. I cut their sleeves and take off the collar. Then I apply upcycled denim around the neck and hop a new blouse!
TO MAKE IT HAPPEN, YOU WILL NEED :
- Half a pair of jean, better if you use some scraps from another project if you want to have different tone.
- A man's shirt that have potential but need a bit of magic
- Our pattern:)
