For this 51st recycling project, my son is in the spotlight…

He grew up at full speed and a lot of clothes become too small, like its some shirts he put from time to time…

I wanted an elegant outfit for the end of this year, but I didn't have the courage to carry it out from A to Z… and why recycling is top… We use the details and the already existing seams and it goes so much faster! and we get the right buttons that go with the fabric and more…

I had no raw (my darling never puts shirt) so I found my happiness at "vesti-aid" from me for 1 euro. A nice red shirt with small black flowers of the Calvin Klein brand. She wasn't in size M, I got afraid that's a fair bit to cut a shirt for my son in there but it did…

For the boss, I went to watch as usual in my collection of magazines October to find the right model.

In the magazine 4/2016, I took the model "reused with love"… the shirt is loose for comfort at the top and I love mao collars… the bottom of the shirt is straight and slightly longer than the front back.

For the process, I cut in full shirt with placket front paw of the wrists and the wrists. I cut a mao collar at the top of the back, then the other parts. I had to fight the Pocket in front and cut it in the right size… which is always a risk to reveal the small hole due to sewing. But this time it's going, there is almost nothing…

And here she is back in full size 116 for my son for five and a half years.

And here's the garment worn proudly by my son who can't help making the clown and his most beautiful faces as soon as I pull out the camera… at five, he is always happy when I sew him a room (even if its specifications becomes more accurate… well here I have not asked if the fabric he liked but he found the pretty shirt… Phew saved!).

I'm happy for the size, it's perfect! a nice model that I recommencerai no problem if I come across another nice shirt…

coming very soon… the second part of a whole…
