....reconstructed a top!!!
I've finished my first attempt at reconstructing a top of mine that I loved the front and detailing on.
Top 1: From Jeans West, nice linen the sleeves tore really easy, so I was unable to wear it. I loved the detail on front so I kept that and recut a new back and sleeves.
the torn sleeves were replaced
Top 2: From Stax, this top had uneven collar heights, which bugged me every time I wore it.I have cut out a new back from this to go on the above top and used the sleeves and put a cuff on them from the back of the above top. This top also had a cut sash belt which I can wear with my new top, like below.
(it's hard to get a good pic of yourself when there is no one else around to take it)
The end result is this cute top, that I can wear with a skinny belt, the sash belt or with out either. I also made the back of the top a little bit longer than the front.
I think I'm addicted and will rethink when I have wardrobe clean out now, I will see my clothes with different eyes.
It has been a fun project for the last day, what can I make now????
