This was an older men’s dress shirt that I took advantage of. Bye-Bye pocket, collar & long sleves… hello shirring, belt & cap sleves! I added elastic to the shoulders so the seam would land in the right place, and also put shirring in the back instead of darts. The waist ribbon adds a bit more femininity as well as cinches the front, as I did not want to add darts there either.
