Old Fabric, New Shirts

I used Butterick 5244 (which has gotten loads of use from me) and thrift store vintage fabric. I omitted the collar. I LOVE this fabric.

I used McCall’s 5621, thrift shop vintage linen as the main fabric, and stash fabric for the accent. I altered the pattern by making it shorter, adding a band at the bottom, and making a slight adjustment to the sleeves. The fabric is a bit stiff, I think that I’ll try and use some fabric softener next time I wash it.

I’ve got a few more non-retro projects on my blog.

  • These shirts are fabulous, I agree the fabric is wonderful and the cut is soooo cute. Let me know if you decide to make 'em to sell- I am on your customer list.

  • I love, love, love the fabric! What a find. The tops are super cute too. I never thought of shortening a dress pattern into a top/tunic. What a great idea!
