Hello everyone! I have been so busy with a move to the DC area that I have barely had time to whip out the old sewing machine. That's changing though, as we are getting all settled in here... and we LOVE it!
I found this shirt at the Salvation Army in Georgia a while back. I thought it would actually look good on and of course I did not try it on... but when I did, oh man. It was BAD. What was I thinking? It looked like a pirate shirt, but with flowers! It was just terrible. I knew that parts of it were good, though. So I decided that I would do a little deconstructing.
I took the sleeves off and used the sleeve material to make a tie-around belt! That gives the shirt a little bit more of a shape, instead of looking overly billowy.
I apologize for the lack of before picture... my husband was still deployed when I made this! You can see the entire post here on my blog, Em-provising. :)
