|Love those buttons!|
At half price I only paid $2.50 and it is a size 12. It was so similar to the green granny silk blouse that I recently refashioned and I envisioned a very similar outcome for this one, as well.
So, after shortening the sleeves, slimming the sleeves and body of the top as well as removing shoulder pads, collar and giving it a new neckline, here's how it came out!
I like the opened up neckline, the pin tucks are beautiful and the color really pops! It is simple and can be worn with jeans and flats, or dressed up for school with trousers, skirts, etc. The winner is a similar size to me (actually thinner) so it should fit her just fine :), which is why I am modeling the final product for you all to get an idea of how it looks.
She's already seen it, approved it heartily, and it is on its way to her in the mail (though I wouldn't have minded keeping this for myself)! Hope you love this piece and are inspired to transform your own pieces to work better for you!
Here's one last look at the before and after:
