Another upcycled shirt. Loving it.

This is my second try at reworking a Goodwill bought shirt. Thought I'd document the steps. It gives me something to blog about!
Started with a pretty floral Liz Sport blouse.





Started out by chopping off the sleeves.








And then the collar.






I placed another shirt that fits well on top so I could pin and mark where I want to sew it.



I used a permanent marker.. might not be a good idea but whatevs.





I stitched along the lines I marked.


If it had been too big I would have kept stitching til it fit but luckily it was perfect the first time.


Cut off the excess fabric.


Next I pinned the top hemline as straight as possible.


And sewed it up. I used two stitches. One straight line and then a more decorative stitch.


Done!


This top looks super cute with a belt at the waistline.



Love.
