After I failed miserably trying to make a New Look pattern with this material, I tore it apart and tried to make it a different outfit. While it isn't exactly what I wanted, it isn't horrid either. My problem is, I feel like there is something not right about it. At the moment it's too tight (I'm working on weight loss), but I tried adding a white band to the bottom which I feel is too big, and too long for this top.
Any suggestions on what I could do to fix this top? I'm wondering if I should lose the white strip at the bottom and just hem the shirt as it is.
*edit* I Finally got around to my UFO pile for this shirt. I decided to ditch the white band and neckband, I traded the white for grey and hemmed the top to a less "in between" length. I saw some awesome suggestions, but at the end of the day, a band around the middle didn't look as good as I thought it would. I turned the V-neck to the back because it didn't sit right on me and I think at the end of the day, it looks better than if I had left it as it was.
