This project is a refashioned blouse made from a men’s dress shirt. I used the pattern New Look # 6808 and some bias binding. Instead of putting in a zipper I used the buttons and button holes from the original.
I also saved the shirt tail. There is more information and photos on my blog. http://www.creativedressmakingathome.com/apps/blog/show/22780567-boat-neck-top-from-men-s-shirt-
