DIY: Mixed print/pattern shirt

    |

For my latest DIY project I decided to refashion my acid wash button up by making it a mixed print shirt and what better print to use than plaid. Plaid is still trending heavily right now so this was a no-brainer but I decided to use a different type of plaid versus the tartan and red/black that we're seeing now. This was my weekend wear look to run some errands and have a chill day.

Supplies:
printed button of your choice
shirt, fabric or bandana of your choice
scissors
seam ripper
pins
chalk
sewing machine

  • Remove the pockets from the button up shirt.
  • Cut out the back panel of the shirt along the seams.
  • Take the piece that you cut and place on top of the plaid shirt or fabric. Pin, trace and cut with a 1 inch SA.
  • Pin the new plaid back panel onto the the edges of the chambray shirt right side to right side and sew over the seams.
  • Since I used a plaid shirt the shirt tail was already hemmed. If you use fabric, sew a hem on the tail of the shirt.
  • Take the denim pocket and pin onto the plaid. Trace with chalk and cut. Iron down the seams to lay flat.
  • Sew a straight stitch about 2 inches down from the top of the pocket.
  • Pin the pocket onto the pocket area and sew onto the shirt. I only used one pocket because I like the way the pocket area looks once removed.
