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