Stylish Remakes
For this top, the original collar and top two buttons are removed (though the collar stand remains) to create lapels. The cut sleeves and collar portions are then repurposed to create a playful big bow, which is actually a brooch that can be detached.

[FINISHED MEASUREMENTS]
(Based on men’s size L)
Length 251⁄2 in (65cm) Bust 42 in (106cm)
*Measurements are strictly for reference and actual measurements will depend on original flannel shirt utilized.

*How to choose a flannel shirt
We used a shirt with a nostalgic feel, and we recommend a close-fitting size for optimal balance.
