I actually used my sewing machine today, so I figured it was worth noting.
Old Navy clothes and I have a bittersweet relationship. Sometimes they’re great and comfy, sometimes they fall apart after you wash them.
But I have a very comfy long sleeve v-neck “vintage feel” shirt I love from there. Great for lounging. And while lounging and sewing in December, I accidentally cut a hole in the middle of it. A pretty good sized hole just above the belly button. Boo!
Since then I’ve still worn it around the house when I’m alone. But I had an idea to save it and today I finally did it.
Luckily the hole was almost dead center to the shirt, so I just cut a straight line down from the neckline, and added a zipper. I used my double needle for knits, and just eyeballed the whole process.
I’m happy with the results, but I’m not sure I trust the fabric. I’m guessing I’ll have to be pretty careful in washing it. But hey, now maybe I can wear this comfy t-shirt out in the world again. And I got myself back to using my sewing machine.
I also worked on another refashion today which I’ll share later. Another Old Navy garment, actually.
Have you every saved a hole-y shirt? How have you done it?
