Green is my favorite color, and I really liked the style, so I deemed this shirt worthy of adding to my wardrobe. There was just one issue. The elastic that was supposed to hit me under the bust? It hit me midbust. So I bought a quarter yard of coordinating fabric, and chopped the shirt in half, right above the elastic.
Then I sewed in a strip of my coordinating fabric, lengthening the bodice so that the elastic hit me where it was supposed to. I also added another strip of elastic on the inside of the shirt to make it a bit more fitted.
Then it was done. Much better fitting and way more comfortable!
This was a quick and easy refashion that made this shirt go from maybe I'll wear that to, yes I'll absolutely wear that! To see more of my work visit my blog, The Sewing Goatherd, full of refashions and other sewing projects.
