Zebra Bow Shirt Repurpose

This was another fun re-purposing project I did using my dress form, or as I lovingly call it "Dolores". The shirt was originally a men's XXL from the clearance section at Target. Man I love Target's Clearance section!

I put the shirt on Dolores inside out and pinned in the sides and the arms.
I then sewed and trimmed off the excess material.

For the bow I used New Look Kids Pattern 6576 bow embellishment .

I sewed it with the raw edge out. It did of course fry a little bit, when washed, but I think it makes it look 100 times cuter.


  1. Looks great! Amazing the difference an embellishment can make!

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a great week!

  2. So very cute! I'll have to remember to shop the men's clearance and ignore sizes since things can be taken up.

  3. Loving the zebra bow repurpose top! Super cute :)
