Hey y’all – today I decided to bring back some Handmade Boy Style and share a recent polo shirt upcycle I made Tater.
The guy seems to be growing in length but not width at all – I swear he’s still a size 3 in the chest/waist/hips, but he’s up to size 6 in length. I made this shirt from an old polo shirt that used to belong to my hubby. In fact it’s one that he wore in maternity photos while I was pregnant with Bean.
But then this shirt shrunk and doesn’t fit the hubs anymore, so he added it to my upcycle pile. All I did was cut the collar off and then cut the shirt down using my Tee Times 3 pattern.
I literally didn’t even refinish the neck – since knits don’t fray and the collar was knit, I just cut it really closely and it’s fine without further finishing.
Happy Friday everyone – hope you have a great weekend!
What a sweet family!
What an awesome refashion!! LOVE the neck! TFS
Did you son think it was cool that it used to be his Dad’s shirt? Maybe that’s something that means more to moms.

What a cute smile he has! My youngest also grows straight up but not out. It’s hard to find pants that fit him… I love this idea for a shirt upcycle! The contrast sleeves are pretty neat. Its awesome that your hubby add to your upcycle basket too. Mine tries to chuck anything that isn’t tied down. 🙂
Great upcycle and beautiful family picture!
Great idea! Turned out so cute!
Really like the shirt …. But LOVE the smile in the last picture….. Makes me smile too!
