A brand new absolutely fabulous summer top!
Here’s what I started with … say no more.
After cutting off the top collar and part of the sleeves in a straight line, I lined the remainder of the sleeves with a thin binding made out of an old patterned pillowcase.
I then inserted pleats on the back and front so that the top fitted my chest and back snuggly, and then trimmed them with a wider strip of pillowcase fabric.
Then I sewed two shoulder straps and adjusted their length to fit my shoulders.
I also sewed the front button opening of the shirt closed.
Finally I added a cute little ruffled fabric flower!
This cute little top literally cost nothing to make and is so flattering!
