Before:

A $1 vintage blouse with an amazing pattern & Peter Pan collar, but strange fit and waaaay too short sleeves. After:

Darts and banded 3/4 length sleeves. Next, before:

Uniform at the restaurant where I used to work. Conservative jeans and shapeless t shirt (one in white, one in grey). Not flattering (at all), but the t-shirts had pretty cool graphics that I wanted to hold on to. After:

Far more body-conscious jeans, and the t-shirts refashioned with the patterns in Built By You Home Stretch. The backs became the fronts, and the fronts became the back.

The tank top could obviously be taken in a bit , and I think I’ll shorten the straps too, but overall, I’m quite pleased. And clearly, I need a twelve step program for crafting, so expect more soon.
