this is officially my 400th post. woo?
most of my spring break has been spent crazily doing homework or panicking about homework.. with an iowa interlude and a day at the auto show. for which i will post pics someday. until then.. here was a small project i did after completing a term paper draft
tutorial recently on converting a silk shirt to a simple shell. and of course i thought.. i can do that! so i did. the end.
just kidding. heres what i did: cut off the sleeves and sew a rolled hem around the arm hole, opened the fold-over button down and sewed it flat, sewed the buttons closed, cut off the collar and folded under the neckline to make it a v-neck, sewed the collar back on over the cut off neck [poor planning in retrospect], and then gathered the front shoulders and made mini-pleats. much better no?
also, sorry for the blurry before-picture. apparently i had changed my shutter speed to a lower setting and forgot to change it back. and idk about the lean in the after-pic. apparently i wanted to be closer to my frumpy-shirted self in too big jeans.
