Description

This is a refashion of my husband’s shirt. I swapped the back and front of the shirt so that my blouse buttons up at the back and added my version of the Peter Pan collar (hence the Wendy blouse ;)). I added cap sleeves and this is pretty much all the changes that I made.

It took me three hours to make it, including drawing the simple pattern.

    This is so pretty and I really like the collar and the cap sleeves. I have also refashioned my husbands shirt but I made it sleeveless. Next time I will definitely add sleeves!

      Thanks, I wanted to experiment with the Peter Pan collar a bit. I like the result.
