Well, I had this top that I bought, for I have no idea why.
It was so low, that even when I tried to sit it at it's highest, half my bra was sticking out of it.
So it hung in my wardrobe for a long long time.
Then, one day, when I decided to take the bottom band off of an old school blouse of mine to make into a cumberbund type belt, I thought "hey, I have some perfect sleeves, buttons and a collar here, all put together for me, I should try using it for something"
So I searched through my wardrobe.
And found the top, which I unfortunately forgot to take a 'before' shot of.
It seemed perfect!
So I set to work.
What I forgot, however, was that my old school blouse was ridiculously oversized (fit for around an AU size 14, while I'm only an 8-10). Trying to shove that into a fitted top wasn't going to work very well.
But I tried all the same!
Foolishly, I tried all the same.
I continued to try, even when lining the collar up with the back was a fiddly pain, having to be changed around five times.
But finally, I ended up with this:http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e400/go_go_kokomo/blacktopwhiteyoke.jpg
And the details of puff sleeves and little flower buttons:http://i43.photobucket.com/albums/e400/go_go_kokomo/blacktopdetails.jpg
I'm quite happy with it.
The only thing I'm thinking about now is whether I should add some black trim to the collar? It looks a bit dull, and melds into the rest of the white a bit too much, but I'm not sure..
