Long time no see! It has been awhile…I missed my baby and my sewing machine, that I have become well reunited with over the last few days. I have a TON of projects done and ready to take pictures of! I’m so dang excited. I’ve been craving projects since beginning of NYC. I have been trying to refrain on family stuff because the last few weeks have been lacking in the sewing department.
This one was one I have been dying to fix because it had such potential. My favorite part about it was the cute flowy back that ties with a bow, that I will also wear in the front. Love me some thrifted tops! I paired it with my refashioned boy blazer and a tee shirt extender…..do you see some brown peeking through on the top and bottom of the shirt…I will have to tell you about that later tonight…there is a surprise a comin’.

If you want to keep the back of a top flowy and the front a little more on the tighter side…this is something you can try.
1. turn inside out
2. measure an elastic from one of the middle of yours sides to the other making sure it is stretched and comfortable
3. sew one side of the elastic to the inside, side seam of your shirt and so the same with the other end on the opposite side. This will be covering the flowy side (for me the back).
4. turn right side out and slip it on making sure the elastic is touching your back. The front will then be pulled tight by the hidden elastic while the back will remain flowy!
