My first refashion

Well I love looking at sewing blogs and love looking at refashions. I've done a few before, mostly turning dresses into skirts. But this is my first one in quite awhile. This shirt I found at the DI and I really liked the tie around the top. However once I tried it on, I realized it was a bit boxy and it has sat in my closet for a few months, never worn. So I have another shirt that inspired me to change this one. This is what I came up with.

Before:

Boxy

After:

Sorry about the photos, I'm not used to taking my own picture. Anyway I just measure evenly up from the bottom and sewed around using elastic. I'll totally wear this now!
