Today starts the 7-Day Challenge: Refashion 7 Items in 7 Days.
Turning one of Charlie’s old green polo shirts was simple but time consuming. In the end, I love the new look except for the dumb pocket. I may try to pick it off again sometime in the future once I figure out how to fix the hole and other potential gaps. If I had more lace, I would have added it to the hem. Other than the pocket issue, the shirt looks great and fits perfectly (the picture makes the shirt look shapeless but it’s not).
What I did:
- removed the collar and placket
- slimmed the sleeves
- created lace bias tape
- used the lace to outline the V-neck
- epically failed to pick off the pocket with a seam ripper and accidentally made a tiny hole
- resewed part of pocket to cover hole
