I wanted to try to make a shirt but I was not confident I would manage the most difficult parts (collar especially).
Then I discovered that my boyfriend had this shirt he never wore (I think he didn’t like the color). Perfect opportunity for me! I only had to change the shape to make it more girly and I shortened the sleeves. I also added contrasted seams for fun.
And here it is: a brand new old shirt.
