Button-Down Two; The White Lacy One

Hello Refashion Co-op. Spring is finally here. This top was made with warm weather in mind. I have a small pile of button-down shirts that are slowly getting makeovers.


I took a beautiful but too large white button down and cut it down to the body. It is going to be too hot for long sleeves.


I turned the top edge down, stitched it, and added lace straps at each shoulder. (I appear to be letting my finger nail polish dry.)


It worked out after some tweaking and white matches everything, that works for me. 

Thanks for reading, for more pictures and details go to I Can Work With That.

Thanks everyone. It should be a great summer top when it is hot outside.
