Description

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 :)

    The fabric is so nice and quirky, I think I might start searching flea markets now!

    Very lovely. Found a good shapeless shirt for the fabric to refash to something just pretty. I like the neckline a lot. Good job.

    Oh… this is LOVELY. Seems as if this refashioning took a lot of hours, just like making a new garment from the beginning.
