Re-Work That Shirt!

Hi All,

I have  been looking at a lot of recycling/upcycling clothing books which seem to be popular. I think I’m drawn to them because I have a (good) habit of saving money where ever I can.

I have come across this particular book called Remake It Clothes, it shows fashion designers that have used newspapers and old clothes to make couture garments.

There’s a chapter that demonstrates different ways to wear a shirt without sewing it, so I thought I’d have a go myself.

Halter Shirt
This is the back of the shirt with the sleeves tied in a halter neck fashion.
One Strap
If it was longer this could be worn as a dress.
One Strap Back View
The front is now the back!

I have only glimpsed through the book, I haven’t bought it yet. When I do I’ll attempt to do everything in it, I need to do a weird and wonderful collection again!

      1. You’re welcome! Is the book costly, easy to follow instructions, and not hard to find? I’m a Novice but do enjoy sewing and crafts. I’ve posted a few things. I look forward to sharing. Continue to Be Blessing because you’re Blessed. Mtetar

      2. Well it was just over £16 and the instructions are very easy to follow. There are fashion designers in there too which may inspire you to make more stuff.

      3. Your rapid reply is much appreciated. I’ll check here in the US and for sure don’t know your currency. Is your jean project listed under sewing or by the month? Be A Blessing because you’re Blessed. Mtetar
