DIY Formal Shirt to Cushion Cover

My first formal shirt refashion was a shirt to blouse, this time it was a lot more simple!

I got an old shirt from my Dad, dyed it turquoise, then cut it under the arms. I placed my cushion on to the shirt, drew round it, then sewed it to size, making sure the ruffles and buttons were centred (the buttons are the cushion opening).

I then trimmed the seams and turned it the right way out and popped my cushion inside! Simple. It is a light weight cover so wouldn't be suitable for a sofa but for decoration on our spare bed it is perfect.

Linking to some of these fab linky parties!


  1. This is lovely! Did you do all the tucks yourself?

    1. Thanks! The tucks were on the shirt already so it was super easy!!
