A Pink Plaid Shirt Even A Teen Girl Could Love

Hello Refashion Co-op. My project today is a pretty pink flannel shirt that my daughter liked but wouldn't wear. It was too big, too baggy and too shapeless.

The sleeves were to long too. They got in the way when she worked. It could have been used as a loose jacket type shirt, but she wanted it to fit. She really liked the color and material.

Could I alter it to fit well enough to satisfy my daughter? I find it's harder to sew for others. I narrowed the body by about 4 inches and I also took in the arms about an inch. Once I did that I didn't need to shorten the arms.

She was very happy with it and wore it to school. Thank you for reading, now go make something fabulous for yourself.

I'm always a firm believer in that even the most simple and easy fixes or mends can make a world of difference. Great shirt to save.
