Up cycling – from men shirt to boy pants

Hub has a more than 10 years old shirt with a collar that is in bad shape. The fabric has broken and to me, it is quite impossible to salvage it (limited tailoring skills of mine).


With his kind permission, i up cycled it to a pair of pants for ds2. Luckily there is sufficient fabric and even to make a nice pocket.

I used the pine cone pattern from “sew like my mom”.






While i quite like the buttons down one side on the pants, i wonder if it is comfy for ds2 to wear.

Any comments if the buttons should stay or go?
