I had what I wanted to do in mind from seeing this shirt on modcloth!
I put it on my dress form to take it in...
To make the peter pan collar I found it on burda.com and it was free.
Cut out 2 different pieces of the white fabric with some leftover fabric I had.
Sew leaving a gap so I can turn it right-side out. Clip it since it is curvy and it will help ease the fabric for the curved collar.
Turn inside out. So its the right way!
I cut off the collar on the polo shirt and then found the center.
I found the center of the collar and pinned the shirt to the collar. Sew it down.
I created a casing for the sleeves and added elastic. It ruffled with the elastic and it looked more feminine with the shirt.
Lastly I hemmed the bottom.
To create the bow I have been messing around. I tried to do tan but it was too bulky. So far I have opted for the cream ribbon I used in my lace shirt.
The end product. I call it charm school cool. I also feel somewhat french for no apparent reason. I threw on my button skirt for the heck of it but I am going to play with more bottoms.
Can we say "Oui!"
