A Little Refashion

This is the original shirt I bought last year, just after I got pregnant. Even though it's not a maternity shirt.

 *Apparently my 'startup disk' is full and it won't let me use Photoshop. What a sad day! So, I couldn't fix any of my photos, so forgive the bad coloring and imperfections.*

I wasn't such a fan of the turtleneck after a while...or the length. So, I cut a round-square neck out, and took about a foot off the bottom.

Then I pleated a long strip and attached it to the neckline. I forgot to take a close-up of it. But you can see a detailed one HERE that Disney used on her lampshade.

The neck ended up bigger than I planned, so I took it in, in the corners.

Still looks kinda maternity, so I think I'll take it in on the sides 'cause I love the front detail. But it's really comfortable! I'm pleased with it for now.

Linking up to:

    I just saw your link from another blog, diary of a craftyholic...and as soon as I saw this I realized I have a shirt like that. You see I just got my very own first sewing machine and i still have a lot to learn, but I saw this and I ran to get my shift. And I did it! LOVE IT!!! I always loved that shirt but I didnt like that it was turtle neck, I can wear now in the summer!!! :)


Please leave a comment! I love feedback! Really, say anything :)

People come'n and goin'
