Inspired by this great work
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=235416.msg2577477;topicseen#msg2577477

I had to have a go at reconstructing a shirt.
I had two white linen shirts that where just that annoying bit too small, so they where used for this project.
I am really pleased as this is my first attempt.
My partner was really surprised that I was ironing, as I never do usually, but this was a special occasion I told him, lol.
Thanks for looking Cheesy

I kept the buttons attached across the front, as I really liked them.

**Added**
Happy with the top, I used the top of the cut up shirt to make this.
 Its either a light coat or could be used as a belted dress. The black fabric has a skull pattern that I love. Not too sure about the finished product, but I will see how I feel iabout it in the morning.




(its either a fuzzy pic or blinding flash, I chose fuzzy)

That's cute. I like the touch of keeping the buttons across the top.

thankyou!
The linen fabric itself is just lovely, and I really am glad I got a new top out of it.
Its so hard to take a good photo of yourself wearing something!
