Create a bombastically cool shirt for the groovy guys in your life with my latest DIY for dudes: the doubled button down – a refashion for guys
Grab 2 button down shirts of the same size & fabric weight (I chose to mix plain cord with plaid flannel for some funky texture & colour)
lay the shirts on a flat surface, one on top of the other with the sleeves of one side of each shirt lined up evenly & chop through both just above the elbow area
fold one shirt in half & use the chopped sleeve as a guide for slicing through the other arm
repeat with the sleeves of the other button down
button up a shirt & cut it in half just below the chest pocket
repeat with the other shirt
open up the buttons & pop one shirt bottom over the other shirt top with right sides facing and side seams & button placket lined up
zig zag over the outside seam for extra strength
pop the sleeves over the chopped arms right sides facing & stitch together
and let that man dress to impress!
but what about those shirt leftovers?
add some sweatshirt sleeves to the mix, stitch ’em all together & create an awesome cowled lumberjack that he’ll love!
