Hello Readers. Summer is over. At least it seems that way where I live. This is the last summer refashion I did before the weather turned cooler.
This light brown linen shirt was a cast off from my husband. He didn't want it any more. I love linen. I love how it wrinkles. I love how it breathes. This shirt just needs a little help to suit me.
I used a shirt I already had as a pattern. I wanted a loose fitting sleeveless shirt not a tight tank top.
I cut out my new shirt and put it all together. I used the bottom of the shirt so I could keep the hem that was already there.
I had a nice loose fitting tank-top when I was done.
I added a small bit of elastic in the back to give it a little shape.
These pants were too wide and long on me. I made them shorts because they were white stripes. I thought white would be a timeless summer look. I saved those 2 leg pieces though. I have a plan for them. You will see them again soon.
I only wore this once or twice and then the weather changed and things have cooled off quite a bit here. I think I can layer the top with other clothes through fall. The light brown is a great fall color. And unless we get a hot day, the shorts are going to have to wait until next summer to get more wear.
Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.
