Here is my second repurposed shirt. You can see what it looked like originally here. The one thing I am fussing about is the button placement. I used the original shoulder seams and button holes, but there is a gap...and I'm not sure the best way to go. Should I add another button? Should I just sneak a little snap in there to keep the gap from opening? I used lastin on the sleeves to make the original sleeves fit a little girl. I cut down the shirt, then added the ruffle from the original width of the shirt. I love how it looks aside from the button issue. I just might have to copy this into another blouse.
UPDATE: Here is how I finished the shirt. Sorry the photo is not great, I took it at twilight last night when I finished the new button holes. My daughter is wearing it to school today, (8/26/09), so this will have to do.
