Men's Shirt Upcycle

Back in July, I was at my parent's place and my mum was getting rid of a bunch of clothing. This long sleeve men's dress shirt (from my bro) was in the pile. I was bored so I decided to restyle it as a ladies blouse with a belt and pleats/ruffles. So here are a few shots after the fact. A full length and then some detail on the belt (made with parts of the cuff) and the sleeves. Quite cute.

I really like this alot, especially the pulled up ruffles on the sleeves. Excellent job. I wouldn't have known it was Zak's shirt except for the little empblem on the pocket. Very nice. Have you gotten my birthday present yet? I gave it to Mom and Dad last time theyw ere here... some things you might like in there...
