A touch of embroidery to this refashion

This latest refashion was from a shirt my aunt handed down to me. I loved the colour, but it was a bit loose. Thanks Aunty Pia!!!

Since I had to cut along both side to take it in, I decided to add a bit detail; some machine embroidery . You can see how cute the design is, even though its actually white in came a bit pink in the photo. I used sticky stabliser to allow me to hoop this area.

Then I used a french seam to finish the side seams, you can see its a much nicer fit.

Look  here for me information on french seams.

The embroidery sure adds a little something! Is your aunt Pia by chance Danish?

Anyway, lovely!
