Okay, not the greatest transformation I have to admit, but it does open up some ideas for more ways to make a fitted shirt.  I used elastic thread and followed the tutorial for it on this site.  If I were to do it over again I would only add elastic to the back of the shirt so it wouldn't open like that near the buttons and higher so it would look higher waisted.

kinda like this:

I love elastic thread!

nifty idea.  i think you have a point though about putting it higher.  That would be a cute look too:)

That's a great idea! Takes a boxy shirt and gives it a more retro look! Might be easier to do than the darts, too! Thanks for posting this!!

well i like it just as it is!  i bet you get lots of compliments on this.

how about putting a H&E or snaps at the little gape in the front?  to help keep it closed?

i think you just gave me the idea for how to rescue a top i've had hanging in the closet for over three years!!!
