Blouse into Halterneck Top

I never wear this blouse anymore, it was too short in the body and I felt it didn't suit me. However, I enjoy the vibrant colour and texture and I thought it would be an ideal candidate for a refashion.

I used the excess pieces of shirt I cut away to create a bias binding to use as edging, creating thin halterneck straps. I managed to make enough binding so that there was enough to tie it into a bow at the front.

Now all I need is a sunny day to show off my new top!

The tutorial for this can be found on my blog Lola Nova Upcycling

I used to have a lot of tops that shape. I like how you have refashioned yours.
