A while ago I turned a boring, ill-fitting blouse into a long choli top which I can wear with my lehengas (Indian skirts).
It was a bluish pink, long sleeve, high neck blouse with lapels, which no longer fitted. I changed the sleeve length and cut out a deep square neckline.
I used some of the bluish pink blouse fabric from the cut off sleeves to add gussets under the arms. Then I added pink cotton fabric from my stash at the hem, sleeves and neckline.
Now the blouse fits much better and looks better than before. 🙂
