Description

I had been thinking that I needed another blouse for work and had seen ones with ties on them that I liked, but had thought no more about it for a while until I saw this post and was inspired:

So I decided to make this old mens shirt into a new blouse. I must just add that this was a project that I thought would take a few short hours from conception to completion, but I had one or two difficulties (I lie, had some serious issues and it took me so much longer than I thought, although eventually I have something quite wearable that I am happy with, though it is not perfect!)

Check out my other projects and make on my blog:
