Necessity is the mother of all inventions!
I've been really low on cash for the last couple of months, and clothes haven't been on my priority list at all. But now, with autumn fast approaching, I've been starting to crave some new garments. So, what to do?
I had this old t-shirt laying around. It was a little bit oversized, and had the chooking-tight neck, but the fabric was a nice quality. The fabric used for the plackets as well as the buttons was things I already had.
There is no actual buttonholes required. The buttons are stitched through both plackets (is that the word? I had to look it up), but it gives an illusion of having a real button-up. I think it came out really nice.

Thank you for looking!
