A revived shirt with peasant cap-sleeves

Added Dec 1, 2007

I love this old shirt for its peasant pleats and peasant shoulders design, but it is way too big. The refashion process included:
1. removed the sleeves and kept the peasant shoulders as cap sleeves.
2. altered the bodice to smaller size based on a close fitting t-shirt. (too small at the end around my waist…dah)

    Love this idea! I have a bunch of long-sleeved shirts in my wardrobe dying quietly – a new life awaits!

    Thank you.

    Oh thank you for the flying comments. I gave this shirt to a girl friend of mine as a gift and she loved it too:)

    Kristen, I did not take out the stitch in shoulder seam, but I did just turn the edges under.

    This is really cute!! It’s gone from kinda dowdy to something I would pay $$$$ in a store. Reminds me of, like, something from Free People.
