Inspiration/ Interpretation: A Polo Shirt


Happy Day Everyone!

I’m over at Elegance and Elephants today for Heidi’s Knock It Off  series. Stop by for a visit. I’m  showing my remake of a polo shirt by Fore! Axel & Hudson.

Hope to see you there!



  • Tamika

    Pretty much amazing, as I knew it would be! That polo is so cute Shannon. And what a handsome model! I’m taking notes, because my son will be there before I know it. And again, you go girl!

    • Shannon_CC

      Yes, you’re little man will be a “big” little man before you know it. (Thank you for the compliment!)

  • Gina

    Your shirt is amazing and the handsome model makes it even more so! Love the way you recycle and reuse; you are so good at it! Have a great day!!

    • Shannon_CC

      Thank you, Gina. The kids outgrow things so quickly. I don’t mind giving things away, but it’s always nice when I can reuse them :).

  • Tammia

    Now I get to see where the placket ended up. Super cute. Your little guy is a great model, too! Nice work!

    • Shannon_CC

      (Ha!Ha!) Yes, Tammia, that’s where it ended up :), but the original placket (with the tutorial) is for a pair of boy pajamas that I haven’t finished yet. Maybe soon.

    oh! I love it! I was just wondering how to make a shirt to go with the plaid pants I plan to make my boys for Christmas… I think I can do this, with the same plaid as the pants for the collar. Also checking out the run and play competition :o)

    • Shannon_CC

      Hi Emily! Thank you so much for stopping by. Yes, this shirt was a lot of fun to make. Let me know how yours turns out :). (Feel free to send me an email if you have construction questions.)
