I refashioned this sleeveless top from a frumpy over-sized blouse. It only took a few steps – I just cut off the sleeves, took in the sides, and finished the armholes with a bias binding.

For anybody might be interested in learning how to finish armholes and necklines using the ‘french’ bias binding method, I posted a full diy tutorial on my blog at http://www.mollytov.com/short-sleeve-blouse-refashion/

Looks Great!  I love the before and after pic.

The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. . . . I would rather have cheese.

Okay, I don't believe those before and after pics, that can't be the same blouse!  What a great redo, it looks so good on you.

Totally amazing transformation!  Also, (I hope you take this as a compliment) you totally remind me of this character from the movie Rio: http://popcultureninja.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/Rio-2011-Movie-Rio-and-Linda.jpg

Great work, love the "new" top. I'm such a fan of horizontal pleats.
