How to Turn a Flannel Work Shirt into a Vest

by on Oct 15, 2009

Transform an everyday shirt into a chic vest.

This Old House meets Project Runway…and the outcome is fabulous!! It all started with an oversized plaid work shirt and became a fun and flirty vest, a la Marc Jacobs. To make one, you’ll need this stuff:

  • a hand needle
  • a ruler
  • a scissors
  • a seam ripper
  • a sewing machine
  • a shirt, oversized, plaid flannel with a back yoke
  • tailor’s chalk
  • thread
  • this tute from Craft Stylish

P.S. This is my 2000th post!!!!
