The next shirt up on my mission to revamp and refashion my wardrobe is a high low shirt. This refashion couldn’t be easier! It can pretty much be summed up by saying cut off the front of the shirt. End tutorial. There you go, good luck! Of course I took pictures along the way so you could see just how I cut the hem off the front of my shirt.
The shirt I found in my closet for this refashion was a perfect fit (for a refashion, not my body)! It was long and loose and rounded down in the front and back. I don’t know if it was the long sleeves or the long baggy front, but this shirt screamed FRUMPY! Not anymore though!
I started by putting on the shirt and marking with a pin where I wanted to cut. Make sure you account for your seam allowance. As you can see the lighting in these pics is less than stellar, just plug through and picture that neon pink color instead of orange puke.
Pin and hem the bottom edge. I used a double needle to sew my hem so that it looked more professional. If you have never used a double needle, give it a try! It is easy and gives great looking results. Just thread your machine like normal but instead of using just one spool of thread, you use two. I use a thread holder like this one to hold my second spool of thread.
Another shirt refashion down! I can now check the high low shirt off my list. It was so easy to do that I am seriously considering doing a few more.
After Lisa, after. Gotta get goin on the rest of my wardrobe revamp and refashion!
