Day 329: How to Upcycle a Men’s Dress Shirt (No Sew)

Day 330: Dark & Stormy Jeans
Day 328: Crankypants Dress

When a couple I’m good friends with moved away (boo!), they gave me a big box of all the clothes they didn’t want anymore (yay!).  In the box was this nice white men’s dress shirt.

Nice as in nice fabric…not so nice on me…yet! 🙂

I knew exactly how I wanted to refashion it!

Here’s how to upcycle a Men’s shirt into a cute top…no sewing required!

I put it on backwards underneath my arms with the collar out like so:

Just like this!

Then I tied it in the front like so:

See where we’re going here?

Then, I wrapped the sleeves to the back and tied them again! 

In just a couple of no-sew steps, I have a delightful new summer tunic!  🙂

I’m really happy with how easy this refashion was AND how cute the “after” is! I hope you’ll give it a try!

Cheers!

    I am late in discovering this fabulous blog, so it is probably moot to suggest posting pictures of the back view of your refashions. This one in particular I think would be nice to see the detail of the buttons down the back – I’m sure it was just as cute from this angle. All your looks are fantastic!

    My husband is 6’6″ – his shirt would work for me to do this, I think! Great idea. If I ever become rich and famous, I’m hiring you IMMEDIATELY to be my personal refashionista! #truth

What do you think?
