GOAL: Refashion 10 Items for August Back to School Wardrobe. This is #2.
Back to School in the HOT August Texas Summer:
*Retired from University and will return to Elementary School in one week.
*Dress is business-casual to very casual.
*I will Up-cycle from my University Pre-retirement work stash.
BEFORE: Casual week-end flowered shirt worn open over t-shirt and white capris. Sleeves had already been refashioned into ¾ draw ups.
STEPS: Shortened sleeves so that eyelet sits just below the elbow. Added pre-gathered eyelet to sleeves. Gathered flat eyelet to hem.
AFTER: Semi-bell sleeve shirt-jacket to wear with lilac t-shirt and white capris.
Just cute enough for Elementary school.
Does anybody have bell sleeve ideas??
|AFTER: Back to School Shirt / Jacket|
|Trim is interesting. |
It is the first thing to look worn in a grament.
But, when new, it finishes a look and revives the older garment.
