A Man’s Shirt Refashion, a Winner and Another Book Giveaway

If I were in charge of the world, I would declare a National Celebrate Your Curves Day. I would proclaim that on this day, in every household, there would be at least one traditional refashion of a boxy man’s shirt into one that will enhance those womanly curves. So, to get you ready for this imaginary new holiday, I’ll show you one way to transform a shapeless shirt into a more feminine one.


Find a man’s shirt with a pattern you like. Then fire up your sewing machine, grab your sewing kit and come with me over to eHow for the rest of the tutorial.


A big hug and a thank you to everyone who made comments and pinned last week’s End Gaposis for Good post. The winner of the first book is…..

    Nice tutorial, Beth. I’d like to see the back view…perhaps a selfie in front of a mirror? Please enter me in the contest 🙂

  2. Beth says:

    I would so do this if I ever come across a shirt with a nice print!

  3. Cynthia Knapp says:

    I pinned this tutorial. I love this shirt. You are so clever! Cynthia

  4. Absolutely love this! The shape will def hide my post-baby belly and accentuate my almost-waist. And husband has way too many shirts. thanks.

  5. Pinned and shared 🙂 I have pledged to refashion more and buy less fabric, it is a steep learning curve, but I think I am getting the hang of it. What I like in particular about your tutorial here, is that it is a complete transformation, not just a bandaid approach. Very many thanks!

  6. Kristina says:

    Pinned and following you on Facebook 🙂

  7. Love how this came out! Great tutorial! 🙂

  8. Barb says:

    Another GREAT project. There are a lot of directions you could take this tutorial to slightly change this for different seasons and so forth.

  9. Barb says:

    It is fun scrolling through the advertisers you have now. Wow! That has grown. Fun stuff there.

  10. Gail Young says:

    Pinned this for my next thrift store find.

  12. Ann M. says:

    What a clever idea! Your tutorial Is great. Thanks for this shirt idea and the giveaway.

  13. amy says:

    Wow, that is not at all what I thought you’d do with this shirt! How very cool!

  14. As much as I love what you did, I would never be able to do it – I can’t sew to save my life. But I could paint it with shading and all, lol!

  15. jenny_o says:

    I love this style, Beth; I think it will work with my body shape and swayback better than many refashions I’ve seen. Thank you for your encouraging words for those of us with more curves 🙂
