A refashion from a shapeless shirt in an amazing fabric that I found in an antique shop. I took in the side seams, added bust darts and contour darts, cut the sleeves to three-quarter length, created gathers at the cuffs, finished the seams with bias binding, cut the neckline into a V, used the sleeve cuffs as the front collar and made a bias tape bow for the neckline. More details on my blog :)
