This off-beat blouse began life as a bit-too-army-for-his-taste husband shirt…
Check out how I (quickly) transformed it into something fit for yours truly:
I grabbed the shirt, a few previously dyed doilies and, of course, a pair o’ knee socks
as the shirt was too big for me I flipped it inside out & took in the sides by placing a shirt that fits me well on top of it & marking the difference on one side with a pencil & pins
then stitched along my marks
chopped off the excess fabric, folded the shirt in half & used the completed side as a template for the other
once the shirt fit I added my lurvly knee sock sleeves & pinned the largest doily to the back
stitched it on, zig zagged the edges & chopped out the fabric behind the doily
then pinned & stitched on my remaining doilies: a bit of shoulder detail & a lovely new pocket!
and my fun new blouse was complete!
