I’m always looking for a light weight fabric that I can wear in the summer and can then layer in the colder seasons. I loved the print so I knew it had potential even it if was an XL and had “power” shoulder pads.
And here it is after I got a hold of it.
1. Removed shoulder pads and shortened the width of the shoulder where the sleeve would now sit in the correct spot
2. Shortened the length of the sleeves to quarter length and added a sheer triangle to the top, middle of sleeves.
3. Took in side seams for closer fit and added a split at bottom side seams to give the top a little more shape.
I liked how the triangle was sheer on the sleeve. It helped this modest shirt have a bit of edge to it, right? Ha, you know, I actually used the sheer from a lingerie piece I never wore. Now, seriously…I think it gets more use this way. *wink*
