Men's Shirt upcycle

There are so many great ideas to up-cycle men's shirts and with so many in op shops it's very tempting to create so many awesome pieces. I have already posted items such as pouches or gift bags from the sleeves and aprons but these are fashion items I now have on my to-do list. I have already raided a few op shops and bought some shirts with patterns that caught my eye or were extra long so I could make a dress from them. That will be the hardest part for me, getting them long enough, as I'm 6ft tall.

  1. It's hard going shopping for men especially if you're buying men's shirts. They don't like going shopping and the only time they ever buy anything is if they're buying it online. It's a good thing that you don't shop like that.

  2. very nice! And it makes a lot of sense. I've run into quite a few toddlers' dresses that feature detachable collars. I have never actually finished one that way and sewed them in place instead. I assume it was either for similar reasons or to make one dress into two.Men T Shirts
