San Francisco , ...
I took my Mom’s old button down shirt from the 60’s and made it into this top. I made the straps cross in back, added a tie at the waist and made a fabric flower. I think it turned out well. I’ve had this shirt for awhile and I finally redid it. I followed the craftstylish directions and got inspiration from kdrodgers project on burdastyle.
