This polyester blouse from last autumn's clothes swap just screams disco to me. That purple snakeskin-esque print would look great though, if there were just a whole lot less of it.
I removed shoulder pads, collar, and sleeves. I turned it around so the buttons are in the back. I took in the sides and added bust darts. Then I made a ton of matching bias tape from the sleeve fabric to finish the raw edges. Now it's much less eye-searing.
