An Eventful Day off Shirt

How amazing is the color on this top?

Not so amazing is the fit... First, I removed the band of material on the hip because it was super tight despite the fact the shirt was very blouse-y

 I took the side seams in a couple of inches and added 2 darts to the back to give it some shape.

I went ahead and cut some length off the sleeves and gave them a simple hem.

It was a bit chilly (Imagine that... #December) so I threw on a sweater.

If you'd like to see why this top was so "Eventful" feel free to see my full post on my blog.

Happy refashioning!
