Men’s shirt refashioned into a top, kesätoppi miesten paidasta

Paita nurmikolla

To prepare for the summer holidays I made this little top out of my husband’s old worn out shirt. You can easily make the pattern with a top that fits you – if it’s a knit just make sure you take measurements before cutting!

Mukavan pehmeä ja vilpoinen kesätoppi syntyi helposti vanhasta miesten kauluspaidasta. Kaavat sain sovittamalla vanhaa toppia paidan päälle. Jos käytät trikootoppia mallina niin mittaa rinnanympärys, ettei uudesta topista tule liian kireää!

I moved the back to the front, the pocket to the other side and made bias tape from the sleeves to turn the neckline and armholes. I also added a dart to the side seam for a better fit. Next time I’ll make a new little pocket cut on the bias too to make it stand out a bit more.

Napitus siirrettiin taakse, tasku etupuolelle ja hihoista leikkasin vinokaitaletta kaula-aukon ja hihansuiden kääntämiseen. Sivusaumoihin tuli muotolaskokset rinnan kohdalle. Ensi kerralla teen vielä uuden taskun vinoon leikatusta hihasta jotta taskukin erottuu paremmin.
