I Made A Hawaiian Wrap
I bought this Hawaiian shirt from a charity shop for a couple of quid as part of my Refashion Pledge. It was XXL but I loved the fabric.
I dismantled the shirt, used a 'wrap shirt' pattern to create a summer top.
There wasn't enough fabric to create the wrap so I used the sleeves from the original shirt and grafted them onto the pattern front.
As a result, I have palm trees both vertical and horizontal .. but hey, who'd notice on a hot beach with a Pina Colada?
