Wow, this brings back memories!!  I used to do the same thing with polo shirts & t-shirts for my little guy.  (he's 11 now!)  I would just buy size 6x or 7 shirts and sew snaps on the bottom hem for the crotch.

I never thought of doing it with a button up shirt, that looks very dapper!  Your little guy is a Q-T!

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Back in the recesses of my mind there lies a repressed memory of a 15 year old me sitting behind a sewing machine turning little t-shirts into littler rompers for my prego sister.  I was her sweat shop.   Cheesy

Thought I would add some pics of the first one I made.  I finally got photos of him in it.  It doesn't fit as well as the blue one because I took the sides in to much and I left very little ease (?) in the arms.  Also cropped the crotch to high.  He'll be able to wear it for a while.  Thinking about adding a strip of orange in the crotch to make it a better fit!

Oreo always gets into the pics.






Close-up, because he is just so cute!

Ah, the orange is great too, although it does put me in mind of a traffic cone.

I have an intention to exploit my 17 yr old sister this summer in a similar manner.  Since I'm almost certain that it didn't damage you much  Cheesy

Its adorable casual enough for everyday but dressy enough for something like church. I might have to try this with some tee's for my monkey.

Oh and BTW, I dont think 4 is too old to wear something like this at all!

I am a little challanged when it comes to sewing. Do you think it would be too much to add a tut? I think I would need a little help (like seeing a visual image of how you shaped the crotch) before I attempted to do this on my own. Its a great idea, and a fun way to recycle!

Well...I didn't sew again for 17 years!  Always new I could, just couldn't bring my self to lay out the pattern, pin, cut, pin...you know!  Repressed memories and all!  Yet another reason I like recons so much, no pattern!!!

About a tute, I'm quite computer illiterate!  Give me a couple of hours and I will see what I can come up with!

Even if you ARE computer illiterate (which I doubt), you are a GENIUS! This is an adorable adaptation!
