For a long time I wanted to do a shirt refashion..
This shirt was never much worn and mostly lied low in the wardrobe..
It was HIS,
I made it MINE..
Well, here is the shirt before I changed it..
First, I cut off the collar, pocket and cuffs
Second, reduced the shoulders and the chest by cutting off extra fabric
Third, sew the sleeves to new arm holes with pleats on the shoulder
Fourth, hem the sleeves to 3/4 sleeve length
Fifth, sew the chest and rest of lower length of shirt with pleats like in peplum tops
Sixth and final, adjusted the lower hem line of shirt by rising the side bit more.
Now that the top is done,
time to embellish..
I painted a motif of Ganesha in red and gold, on the left
Added little dabs of red on the buttons just to add colour
Here i finish the top with a scarf belt in red
Wear it with long pencil skirts or jeans..
It was fun making
and wearing HIS as MINE
See you tomorrow..
