    |

This week's remix is a mixed print shirt. Mixed prints is currently trending heavily with mixes such as florals and stripes, leopard and polka dots, or even paisley and plaid. The key to making this work is to make sure at least one color repeats in each pattern, mix small prints with bigger prints, and limit prints to two. For this project I took two printed shirts and made it into one color-blocked print top.
Supplies:
2 printed shirts
chalk or marking pen
ruler 
scissors
pins
sewing machine
  • Mark on each shirt where you want each block to be placed using the chalk and ruler and cut.
  • Place each piece right sides facing each other making sure one piece is inside of the other piece. 
  • Pin around the edges to hold in place.
  • Sew using a straight stitch and then repeat using a zig zag stitch. You can also use a serger.
