First I took off the plackets that held up the sleeves and pinned lace along the bottom hem, the sleeve hems, the pocket flaps, the edge of the collar and the button placket.
The back looked so plain, I added lace to the two back seams and the mid shoulder seam, too.
I sewed everything in place, changed the buttons out for pearl-look ones ....
and a new shirt was born!
And believe it or not, I'm going to leave this one white. Yep - even my husband was shocked!
Happy Creating! Deborah
Very pretty! I was scrolling through the photos wondering what the final color would be:)ReplyDelete
This looks smashing.........what a great remodelling!ReplyDelete
Absolutely wonderful. It makes me want to go through my closet and take a second look with "new eyes" at some of the shirts that I am so tired of.ReplyDelete
