Hey guys, you ready for something besides a dress? Yep, I know, it’s gonna be craaazy! I found this floral button up for $1 on clearance from a local consignment store.
What can I say, it was a crazy pants kinda day. First things first, I took my handy dandy seam ripper and removed the breast pocket.
Boom, pocketless shirt.
It looks a little bit scary, but I promise I’ve used RIT many times, I’ve never had problems with dye running or staining the machine. If you’re going to use RIT, use the hottest setting for the best dye absorption and cold water to seal the color in during the rinse.
After letting the shirt dry I brought the sides and sleeves in ~1 inch on each side. And voila!
Bonus: I think this turned out with a similar feel as a chambray shirt and I’ve been wanting one for awhile. So, what will tomorrow bring? It’s been a great week of refashions (if you’re just joining I’m on day 6 of a 7 day refashion challenge), don’t forget if you’ve been participating leave a comment and I’ll link you into my final post tomorrow!
