This started life as a man's shirt, but it was from a cheapy shop, so the fit wasn't brilliant, and it was quickly cast off by other half right into my clothes magpie grasp! Yay!

I loved the print on the fabric, but mansize I am not, and so I set about girlifying it. It's a mixture of a heavily altered Simplicity 3777 and a large amount of winging. It's not 100% finished, as you can probably see with the pins, cause I can't decide if I want 2 buttons on the underbust band, or just one. I was too excited not to post it though  Cheesy







And here's a (shoddy) before pic:

That's an amazing recon!  One would never know it used to be a man's shirt.  I know you didn't ask, but I vote for 2 buttons - a cute detail that will make the band stand out a little more and girlify it just one more notch.

I really like this! It is very nicely done and looks like it'll fit well. The ruffles of the sleeves make it extra girly Smiley

I think one or two buttons would look cute. Smiley

It's a lovely shirt - very flattering shape!
