I refashioned my dear stepson brand new t-shirt that didn't fit him to my active wear 😀
Actually the t-shirt fit me as it is but I didn't like the style. It looks too manly for my preference and I like more loose style t-shirt, so I decided to add colour block in both sides. I used left over black knit cotton from stash and I think black and grey are matching nicely.
The process was fast and easy. I started with cut both sides of the t-shirt from the end of the armhole to the hem.
Also cut two pieces of long stripes as shown in the picture below from black knit cotton. The smaller shape (8 cm wide) is for armhole and bigger shape (15 cm wide) for the hem.
I attached the black stripe onto front and back t-shirt. And sew them with an overlocker machine. I did for both sides.
After I did the colour block and trimmed the sleeves, I sew the sleeve hems with twin needle. And then shaped the hemline with U-shape. I measured 10 cm from the bottom t-shirt, marked the shape and cut it.
Here is the look of it after the cut and then I sew the hemline 1.5 cm with twin needle. Done! 😁
Today is the third day of Me Made May 2017 and it is holiday in Macau - Buddha Day. So, I decided to walk around Taipa hill with my dear son and husband. And took some pictures to publish here in the blog 😊 I am wearing the t-shirt with old favourite Burdastyle black skirt and refashioned tote bag from old denim pants that I will blog about in the end of next week. Actually I made two totes and one in progress 😀
Far away in my back is Macau, I think you can see Macau Tower and MGM building with orange, blue and yellow colours. Too bad that we have hazy day with high humidity, otherwise you can see beautiful Macau from here.
And last picture taken in last month, two days after I refashioned this t-shirt. I wore it with my latest active wear Simplicity pants.
That's it for today post everyone, I am joining MMMay'17 through Instagram this year and will be making weekly recap to show here in the blog.
Happy Sewing and thank you for reading.
