So I've been turning long sleeves into pants. And I've been turning big shirts into little shirts. And the thought occured to me yesterday when I saw this shirt at DI, couldn't I turn one long sleeve shirt into pants AND a little shirt??


Here's the blurry before:

The placket was really weird and puffy, otherwise I would have used the neck just the way it was. Instead I cut that strip off up the front of the shirt and pieced the front together. I wanted it to look asymmetrical and raw. Mainly because I don't like to take the time to make it symmetrical and clean. It's nothing fancy. But it works great for a comfy pair of winter jammies. I added the buttons to the front just for fun. I think they turned out pretty cute:

Ok, ok, so they're a really ugly green and they look pretty chopped.... But at least the kid's cute. And who doesn't love waffle weave??

I think I may have an addiction. It won't be long before Zach and I don't have any clothes to wear because I've chopped them up and turned them into clothes for the boys.

I think they turned out pretty cute also I know there is no way I would ever be able to turn anything into something wearable.
