Hot Pink Silk... Oh yeah

I felt like I needed to do something pink or red for Valentine's Day yesterday, and this hot pink silk blouse fit the bill perfectly. Too bad it was a size 3X and had shoulder pads out the wazoo. Not to worry! I know just what to do!


I removed the shoulder pads and took in the sides to fit. Then I used the excess fabric to create a faux button band down the center and cuff straps on the sleeves. It turned out just perfect for date night with the hubby!
