All through my teens and early twenties (when I had mum's sewing machine handy) I was always into refashioning garments. I remember with fondness walking out of a Trift store on countless occasions, bags in hand that would cost approximately $1 NZD each. Oh the Good Ole Days eh?
The best I can do nowadays is £3-£4 per second-hand item which is actually quite good buying yeah innit.
This week I splashed out and spent a few quid on some business shirts with the view of refashioning them into little guy shirts for my boys. I didn't have a pattern so just traced around an existing shirt for the sleeves, shirt front and shirt back and used the existing collar and cuffs (although I reduced them in size to fit).
And this is the result - a Sunday Best Shirt for Beni-Boo:
And now to make some ties and bow-ties to team up with the shirt - now THAT will be cute!!
