For $1 I think I can turn this into a fun top. I began by cutting off some length
Then I took in the sides and the sleeves 2 inches
Velvet is very difficult to work with! You can't use enough pins! (I also cut off some length on the sleeves).
I turned the shirt around so the zipper closure was in the front, finished my raw edges and called it a day. (It was actually quite a challenge.... #VelvetSucks).
It made for a lovely Holiday top to wear to my extended Family's Christmas Eve celebration :)
If you'd like to see EVERY step (and there were a lot) in this refashion or WHY I called it "The Nose Strikes Again" top... feel free to see the post on my blog.
Happy Refashioning and Happy Holidays
