Phew, it has been a long time not posting here!
But I was busy doing crafty stuff, lately I'm really getting into recycling old clothes. I usually buy something really cheap (they have sales there every month: everything for 1!) at a vintage shop in Antwerp and then (totally) change it/spice it up.

The final result:


A before picture, as you can see it was waaaaay too big on me, I didn't like the length nor the neckline.


So this is what I did, I shortened it a bit, took out the elastic and put in some new elastic and changed the neckline by adding a button to the side.









Really happy with the way it turned out!

What do you guys think?
