I am using 3 different thrifted t-shirts as the fabric and turning them into a colour blocked polo. The blue one is @gildanonline, the red is from a past project and the white is @eightyeightagency

Want to see the progress?

I started working on transforming some tees into a polo shirt, but then realized I had made things more difficult for myself then they needed to me. Next I had to go grab another t-shirt from the thrift store to cut up so in the mean time, Poppa Plants took over and finished out the episode.

Also, that second look is entirely me made. I had a moment of pride recognizing that this morning.

This week’s video was me making said button up shirts.

They’re clean, classic white button ups I can wear with just about anything.

I learned plenty more about making button up shirts in the process, specifically collars and plackets.

I started making 2 white button ups last week.

This week my biggest challenge was sewing the plackets. I took the time to figure out my placket pattern properly and the whole project took much more time then I had anticipated, but I got them done and it has all be worth it. I have two classic white button ups now.

I am making 2 of them at once. I am making them out of a thrifted king size bed sheet.

Making the collars didn’t go so well.

I picked up a white king size bed sheet at the thrift store and got to work turning it into two button up shirts. I had planned for it to be a straightforward sewing video, but once it came to the collars, I messed up again! I’ve been sewing for two years now and I still struggle sewing collars!

I operate on a weekly schedule. My weekly videos are a big part of this. It also seems my sewing supplies are low so for this week’s video, I went around Toronto to pick up some supplies.

Finally, I got myself something nice.

I made a sweater and shorts that are basically a track suit, but most of the time I am going to wear them as separates, like this.
