DIY: Men’s to Women’s Shirt

I went shopping today, and all the styles and colors and patterns that I was looking for kept showing up in the men’s section of stores. So I went for it and bought a men’s shirt. This project was great motivation to get me excited about sewing again. After shortening the hem, taking in the back with some darts, and tacking down rolled up sleeves, I turned this baggy men’s shirt into a nice, fitted women’s shirt.

I solemnly swear that I am up to no good…

I never knew that I could get a sewing injury until I got one.

Two days before I went to Florida for Christmas break, I was sewing an elephant sweatshirt, and the needle on my machine went through my finger!

Thankfully it sounds worse than it actually was. This tragic event has not deterred me from sewing.

In other news, I made a mood board/inspiration board for Provo Fashion Week. I don’t know if you can tell from these pictures or not, but I am going with a minimalistic, African theme.

And I just finished sewing a shirt! The first one I have ever made.
