Today’s top began as a boring $1 thrifted silk button down shirt/blouse.
Obviously, it’s too big for me, and not very exciting.
I liked the soft pink though. The color reminded me of Molly Ringwald’s top in The Breakfast Club.
I got started by chopping off those sleeves.
Temps have hit the 100s here, so we’re going sleeveless today!
If you’ve ever been to South Carolina in the summer, you know that walking outside is like walking into the sweaty armpit of a giant baby. :/
Next, I took each side in about 2 1/2 inches. I still wanted my top to be a little flowy, but I was drowning in the original.
Next, I chopped a half-oval shape out of the front of my new top.
Then, I hemmed the raw edge.
I pressed all my new hems and seams and was done!
At first I didn’t like it. It was still pretty plain.
But after styling it with a thrifted belt, a pencil skirt, and my tweed espadrilles, I think it’s okie dokie! 🙂
