It only took me about three hours to become bored out of my mind… and this was day one of my uni holidays. I was lucky enough to be struck by some crafty inspiration after watching a fantastic tutorial on Ann Le’s fashion blog – click HERE for link. She shared an easy to follow video + photos on how to transform a mens shirt into a womens off-the-shoulder top, a style I’ve been coveting for a while but couldn’t bring myself to buy from a fast fashion store.
I hit my local opp shops in Annerley and scored two mens shirts ($3.50 each) which I swiftly took home to start working on. I purchased two because I knew I’d inevitably screw one up (which I did) but hey, I learnt that lesson fast! That lesson was, don’t cut the shoulders too low or you’ll end up sewing the arm holes shut.
I’m so happy with how shirt number two turned out (below) and I loved that I could control how tight the elastic was (so I don’t have to keep yanking it up like others I’ve tried on). It looks great, I feel great in it, and it transformed an otherwise discarded shirt into a cool fashiony thing – which is the best!
