The fashion industry sucks, that’s probably what most of us have thought at one point or another. Especially if you are not stick thin and fitting into ridiculously small sizes for an adult woman. But sometimes you strike luck and the trend seems to go into a wearable direction.
A few months ago I stumbled into a Mexx store and found this cute little boxy shirt. Black with white and blue dots, flowing fabric, short tight fitting sleeves, wide boat neck for a cute off-shoulder look. It turned into one of my favorites and I was looking for more shirts of this kind. But neither local stores nor online shops seemed to help me find something just like it. Too cropped, too strange prints, too something or other.
So what’s a girl to do but dig into her fabric stash, grab the tissue paper and sewing machine and simply rig up a copy of said favorite shirt?!
Boxy shirt in printed viscose jersey
Copying the shirt first onto tissue paper and then transferring the pattern onto fabric was easy enough. Even though my sewing machine doesn’t love jersey fabric all that much it worked okay to put the four pieces of fabric together. Some tweaking here and there and the shirt actually turned out the way I wanted it to. Yay for DIY 🙂
