REDO

So do you end up with clothes in your closet that you never wear?  I do and it drives me crazy, many times I will buy something and get it home and it just doesn't work, but for some reason I keep it around.  That is what happened with this shirt


I really love the print but after one wash it shrunk, awwwgh.  I tried to wear it a few times after, but I found I was always pulling on it.  I felt uncomfortable the whole time I had it on.  It was not an expensive shirt, but like I said I liked it.  Soooo, I decided I would make it work.  I stared by cutting the neck detail off and put it onto a solid pink tee.



I it was an okay solution,



I wore it once this way, but I felt a bit "clownish" and the goal was for me to feel comfortable in it again.

So onto the second version.



I traces around my favorite perfume bottle (Does anyone else use Sake by Fresh?  It is to die for).  I ended up cutting most of the shirt into circles, then started hand sewing them onto one side of the neckline.



Much better results, no more clown shirt.



I love this version.



So what do you think of my shirt remodel?  I have a few more I am working on also.

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend my lovelies.

Oh man, shrunken shirts are the worst! But I think it was worth it, beaus that last shirt looks amazing. Thank you for the picture of it on. I have a hard time liking clothes that are just lying flat. I don't have enough imagination, I guess. But it looks so pretty when you are wearing it!

Now that is super cute. I like it much better than the ruffle around the neck! I definitely need to clean out my closets and do some revamping!
