New Knit Top from Old Polo Shirt

Updated: Jun 1, 2022

I've been having fun transforming a men's polo knit shirt featuring a knit collar and front button tab closure into a wonderful women's knit top! My first 'play' with this was using a polo from my late Dad's precious wardrobe AND a woven dress shirt that belonged to my late big brother. This khaki shirt made it into my pattern: Up-Cycle Memento Tops.

And here is my newest Up-Cycle Top.

What did I start with? Shopping at the Goodwill…. 2 men’s tops. At left, the main pique knit collared, embroidered with logo, men's XL polo shirt.
