Zip Your Lip

I have been on a bit of a refurbishing/refashioning kick lately. No big projects, no patterns, but a lot of applique, dying, etc. This shirt is one such project. It started out as a typical boring, long sleeved, button down shirt. I shortened the sleeves, took off the collar, took in the sides a little, and added the zipper and the patches on the sleeves. I really like the zipper, but I’m not so sure about the fabric on the sleeves. What do you guys think??

Also, I am taking a Photography class this semester, so hopefully my pictures will improve:)




  1. I think the fabric on the sleeve looks great. Love the zip, too. Very creative. What a lucky brother.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I think the fabric on the sleeves adds a nice touch, and the zipper is fun. Great job!
