I had this girly shirt blouse for over 10 years, and I loved it. But never really worn it because it was too short. So decided to give it a new life!
I cut off the shirt below the chest and connected it with the skirt(I used Burdastyle-Danielle pattern for the skirt part.) Changed the cheesy clear buttons to classy black ones. And, added ribbon onto the empire weist.
Thanks to the pleats, my pregnant belly still fits :)!
I am really happy with how it transformed!
