Crazy New Shirt – Recycling a man’s Shirt

So in keeping with my recycling theme at the moment, I have created a new ladies shirt form a man’s collared shirt a friends was throwing out.

I wanted to keep the button feature from the center front of the shirt but put it at the back to make my shirt much more feminine and remove the collar.

I went to my favourite Turkish Fabric Market in Berlin and found a great trim to put on the shoulders.

I have removed the oringinal sleeves and added the trim as an edging.

Below you can see the tucks I have created at the front neckline and back neckline to add a design feature and make the shirt sit propertly

You can also see here that i have kept the hem exactly as it was!
