Well it is big and has an elastic waist.
A lovely metal embellished collar
and a peak-a-boo faux middle placket. This was built in.
First, I dyed the fabric with pink iDye to change it up. What I got was a purple color with bright pink accents. It was almost like magenta. Interesting. (sorry no pics).
I cut the top from the bottom. Out came the elastic.
I used this pattern from simplicity 1693, and changed the sleeves to the longer sleeve option.
The skirt itself had a lot of fabric, even for long sleeves!
Here is the recap. The change in color is subtle but nice. It is an easy blouse for work. :)
