Sunday DIY: Denim & Check Mix Shirt

check and denim mixed shirt diy 3
Since today is Mother's Day today I have teamed up with my mum for this week's Sunday DIY!
Denim & check mixed shirts have been popping up all over the high street and I really love the trend so I thought it would be perfect for a collaborative DIY project.

My mum put this one together using an old denim waistcoat and a mens shirt we picked up at a local jumble but you could also pick up two shirts and swap the sleeves over to create two mix and match shirts in one go!

All you need to do is carefully remove the sleeves from your check shirt and pin them into place. Then you can either sew them on using a machine or by hand, whichever you prefer. Tidy up by trimming any excess fabric from around the armholes on the inside of the shirt and you're done!

If you want to customise the shirt further you can always add a check pocket (as shown above), a check collar or even some stud detail.
