During the fall and winter months you can often find me in a chambray, plaid or flannel button up shirt. That is my go-to outfit. I love how you can layer them over skirts or jeans. And when it's cold long sleeves are a must (I hate getting my short sleeves all bunch up in my winter coat). So I've been on the hunt for a few more button ups.This shirt is very much inspired by this shirt from Free People. I saw it in their fall catalog. My goal wasn't really to create something that looked EXACTLY the same. But it did inspire the idea of replacing the back of a button up with a bandana. This was perfect for this particular vintage shirt I had, because it had some large rips in the back.Cut out the back of your shirt. We cut along the seams, using them as a guide. Now use the cut out peice as a pattern for the bandana, leaving 1/2 inch extra around the edges (seam allowance). Pin the bandana in place and stitch it back together. Easy as pie!I kept the colors pretty matchy matchy but it could be really fun to use a brightly colored bandana for a cute pop of color on the back. But you do as will. 🙂 xo. Emma
