this top was $4.99 at goodwill and the retro print caught my eye. it has the unfortunately named "pussy bow" necktie which was my sole purpose for buying. and yes it is a size ginormous.
i chopped off the sleeves, took in the sides about 4" on each, and resewed the sleeves with an adorable pouf on the top..only to realize i had forgotten to allow for the large shoulders. i unpicked the sleeves, recut the arm holes, and then resewed the sleeves. the sleeves were still too long so i folded up the cuff and overstitched. done. and yes, the bottom still buttons with plenty of room, but i think it looks better as a jacket than a shirt. not quite fitted enough and not enough patience to fit it properly into a shirt.
a kitty outtake. hallo? is the camera still on?
this is a pretty decent pic too but if you look closely, the blur at the bottom is from curious kitty ears. oh well.
