BB refashion

My first post in 4 years!
I've been doing quite a bit of sewing recently.  This was an expensive Brooks Brothers shirt of my husband's that the cleaners could not clean the ring around the collar stain.  My daughter thought it looked cute on my new dress form so I altered it to her specifications. Low armholes, cut in shoulders, and no collar. She'll wear it with a belt.

That's very cute. And very creative. I love making a different garment from an old one. Usually, I do a blouse from a dress, or maybe a blouse or jean-style vest from a skirt or men's shirt, if there is enough fabric. I find I can't always buy these fabrics in the fabric store.
