Cross stitch

I have had this blouse since around the time I started this blog. Tired of waiting for summer to happen, I decided today was the day this piece was going under the knife (well, scissors).

This cost £3.25 from the PDSA shop in Barking. It has a very pretty embroidered cross stitch pattern on it.

There’s not really that much wrong with it beside the fact that it just doesn’t fit.

I cut off the sleeves and reduced the size at the side seams…

Then did the same with the lining.

I tried it on to check the fit was OK and thankfully it was perfect.

I wanted to keep the cross stitch pattern from the cuffs, so I made a simple quick cap sleeve from the bottom of the original sleeve.

Here’s how this quick and easy refashion looks on. Delightful!
