Thrifted boxy shirt made fitted


This was a vintage Marks and Spencer St Michael's brand cotton shirt that I picked up on a thrifting trip to Glasgow, years ago.  It was 99p, a bargain.  The print is a cutesy blue floral pattern, perfect for Spring, but the cut was boxy and unflattering.  It's been waiting in my fabric trunk for years, all it needed was some bust darts and an inch or so taken in around the waist.



All in, a success. Now I just need a picnic in a meadow to wear it!  You can read more about my thrifting, crafting adventures over at my blog Craft & Thrift.

It's amazing what a couple darts can do! And those little blue flowers are so sweet!

Darts can make such a difference in a shirt. Great refashion.
