I loved the print on this men’s shirt and decided it had to become a girly blouse. I cut across the waist and created a smaller bodice with darts. Then, I gathered the lower half and reattached it to the top half. I removed the sleeves and created a belt from them, using the buttons on the placket as a back detail. Lastly, I repurposed the cuffs as cap sleeves. Et voil, a cute summer blouse!
