My Favourite Thing for Simply Sewing Magazine

refashioned shirt - simply sewing

I was really happy to be interviewed for Simply Sewing’s feature called “My Favourite Thing” for this month (issue 14).

It’s on the back page and you might recognise one of my shirt refashions for Portia’s The Refashioners project last summer. I chose it because as well as being really pleased with how it turned out, it’s a project that brings together a lot of my interests and values.

Hope you enjoy reading it (click on the image and it will open full size in another window)!

A Refashioned Dress Shirt

the refashioners 2015

I love men’s traditional formal dress shirts those with the bib fronts, I think that bib section is crying out for a bit of textilian magic and have had ideas buzzing around for a long time, so what more perfect excuse than the Refashioners?!

I was so happy when super creative refashioner extraordinaire Portia asked me to take part in her project and this one is up on her blog today.

I used one of the patterns from my book “The Beginner’s Guide to Dressmaking” as a starting point, read all about how I did it.
