T shirt Refashion

Update your wardrobe with a quick t shirt refashion. Playing with former clothes, having a go at adapting them doesn’t cost anything but time and a little imagination.

This is a super quick and easy way to refashion your old t shirt, add a splash of color with this step by step sewing tutorial #sewing #refashion


I regularly hold upcycling t-shirt’s into necklace workshops, it seems only fitting that I wear a refashioned t shirt for the events. 

A simple white t shirt transformed with a textured pink t shirt.


To refashion your t shirt make a diagonal cut along the bottom. With a second t shirt cut a tube of fabric.


With the right sides together stitch together, you may need to gather the extra fabric slightly so it fits flat. Hem the new edge.

Cut 1 ” strips for binding the edge of the sleeves. Pin these right sides together along the edges of the sleeve. Stitch round.


Turn over to the inside of the t shirt and pin in place.


Stitch along the edge of sleeve.

With the remains of your complimentary t shirt you may wish to make yourself a necklace to match.
