Button-Down Five; The Floral One

Hello Refashion Co-op. It's Chickie again. I had this pretty shirt with a great blue and white floral design. It is too big but that makes it great for a refashion project.


I cut off the collar and shoulders. I turned the edge under and stitched it closed. I threaded elastic through it to make a wide neckline.


I shortened the arms and attached elastic around the "waist" to bring it in a little and give it a more flattering fit.


It has a better fit now and is nice for the summer heat that is coming. 


If you want more details please go to I Can Work With That .

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
