kcwc - day four! Upcycle for baby D

So excited!!!!!
Well, remember this shirt from yesterday? I absolutely love the fabric! Not surprisingly I was the one who picked it for the Mister. It's a very soft cotton with fine blue and orange stripes and an interesting weave on the blue stripe. Lovely. 
Oh yeah, and it had a hole in the middle of the back!

Well, this is what became of it:

Seriously, how cute is this?

 And how much cuter is baby D wearing it!


I used out of print Butterick 4791, slightly altered. It had elastic around the legs and snaps on the inseam. I opted for biding it and omitting the snaps.
And because I know you're wondering if there was any fabric left, here it is: I still have the collar, button plackets, 2 sleeves and strips of what was once a man's shirt :)

And tonight I'll be working on this item, that has been sitting here unfinished since last spring!

And on another upcycle that I already cut, this is what is left of the original item.....
See you tomorrow!
