I seam to run into the same dilemma every time I get a new job – the employer decides a size large mens uniform will look good on everyone. He could not be any more wrong. So this time my uniform is just a typical mens oxford shirt. I’m looking for an easy way to tailor it to be more feminine! I’ve watched some tutorials on darting just below the bust line and in the back, but the interfacing on the sleeves and collar is so stiff. I was hoping to make the collar more open in the chest area? ironing it into place isn’t working. And theres so much fabric in the sleeves, but its sewn into the cuffs :S anyways, any suggestions would be much appreciated!
