‘Redressing’ my Wardrobe’s Gaps

In the charity shop the other week, I spotted a shirt that I loved! I tried it on and realized it was actually a dress: perfect for becoming a tunic.
The pockets hit right at the hips, so I chopped and hemmed just below the pocket. This opened up the pocket fabric to give a bit of hip space/flare.

I’ve now worn this to work several times and it has become my new favourite shirt. It fits perfectly in all the right places and all the right ways so I don’t even think about it when I’m wearing it; a perfect chest, neckline and length.

(Ignore the messy inner hem’s second stitch line, that’s not visible from the outside)

      Honey gets the credit for spotting the pattern. I’m definitely checking out the dresses next time I need a new top.
