Description

I took an extra large men’s button-up shirt with an old vintage pattern to create a brand new blouse! I love the results. :-D

      Same! My favorite part was buying this shirt at a thrift store for only $1.50. Lots of bang for your buck, you know? :P

    I agree with corduroycoat about the placket. Nice work!

    I love that you used the placket in the back! It keeps it from looking like a refashion of a mens shirt. So chic and fresh!

      Thanks! I tried hard to make it into something completely different.
