Here is another half price garment I purchased from Salvos, a mens shirt. I saw it the week before I bought it, labelled with a yellow tag at $5. I loved the print, but decided not to buy it. However, the following week, all yellow tags were half price, and with the shirt still for sale, how could I resist it this time?
It was (past tense because it is no longer) a completely reversable shirt, it could be worn with the green floral print on the outside, or inside, with buttons on each side.
I cut off the sleeves to make a tunic top for myself. It wasnt intentionally going to be a tunic top, I was going to make it into a cap sleeve shirt, but liked how it looked with a belt with the length remaining:
And the good thing about keeping the length - I can also tie the bottom of the tunic top at the front for a different look:
Nothing goes to waste in this house, the shirt sleeves I used to make a pair of trousers (pants) for my little boy. It is cool that I can fold up the cuffs on the bottom of the trousers, or leave them down:
And I still have a little bit of fabric left over from the top of the sleeves which I could use for cap sleeves for my top if I decide to later. I'm glad I bought this shirt for $2.50!
