I decided to re-fashion the Indian block-printed top that I thrifted a few weeks ago.
It appears to have been stitched in India and is covered with embroidered mirrorwork. I took it apart and added bust darts to give it some shape. Then I had to re-hem the front and back, which were now different lengths because of the darts. I removed the sleeves and cut down the armholes. The sleeves were wide but I decided to use that extra width to make slightly puffy sleeves by gathering the top before setting the sleeves in and adding three small tucks at the sleeve hem.
Of course, come cooler weather, I’ll layer this over a long-sleeve t-shirt or blouse to give it my favorite double sleeve look.
I’m cat-sitting for Tigro for the next 2 weeks (he stayed with me in April). He hates being in his carrier and yowled the whole way from his home to mine. He seems to have recovered from the trauma of the transport and made himself right at home.
Linking up to Ta-Dah! Tuesday for the shirt re-fashion. Tigro has no ta-dahs to offer. Lazy cat.
