When my ex and I split he took half my dvd’s and I got two of his shirts. I wanted to turn something that made me sad and mopey into something cute and flirty.
I have very ample hips, so I used some of the excessive length to flesh out the hip area, and to make little sleeves to cover the post relationship pudge that accumulated on my arms. I removed the collar and added it back to the front after I’d made the shift. Since the shape of the neck no longer forced a curve on the collar, I tacked the collar over with loose stitches.
