Refashion || Men's shirt to more feminine blouse
What you'll need for this project:A thrifted man's shirt
A thread ripper
About a metre of chiffon in a matching colour
A blouse that fits you or a pattern
How to refashion the shirt:
Cut out a new place for the sleeve using your blouse or the sleeve of a blouse pattern. Use that same pattern to cut out a sleeve from the chiffon.
The end-product is quite pretty, I think. It might also serve as a light cover-up for a cool summer's evening. I haven't worn it yet, though, but I seem to have a phobia for wearing clothes I've made for myself. Anyone else suffer from that?
