Well hi welcome to my little blog. Just my little corner of craftiness, sewing, and refashioning. I am also a newly gluten free eater so you have a little bit of recipes mixed in here.

Oscar de la Renta clown shirt, refashion 95

I found this gem and when I looked at the tag, it said Oscar de la Renta. May he rest in peace. But this shirt instantly said clown to me. That collar is over the top!

It is just too much, with such loud fabric, the details must really been minimal.

Off came the collar and sleeves. I fixed the neckline. I then used a sleeve to create a tie strip that I then attached to the neckline. Then I finished up the arm holes. Done! I didn't have to take in the sides as really it was fine.

Here is my new top!

Simple and alright for the office.


It is super cute tucked into the skirt.

And if I added a blazer (obviously I would select one that would work better with the skirt) then it further tones down the loud magenta and black striped fabric.

I had no idea this top was really going to work but it does! Yay! Here is the recap!

Cheers,
Lauren
