Wardrobe Refashion Wednesday #5: And all I feel is black and white...
Not to mention that I always feel very stylish in this-- in fact, several years ago when some of my friends had a Zoolander-themed party, in which we were supposed to dress like supermodels, this was the shirt I wore. (We had a photoshoot as part of the party, so that's where the pic is from..)
Of course, you can also see what I did NOT love about the shirt in this picture--the length of the sleeves. I think they were meant to be long, but they hit in this weird spot of my arms where they were about an inch or two too short to be long, but waaaaaay too long to be 3/4. So I decided that, in order for me to continue to feel comfortable wearing this in public, something had to be done. I know I have long arms, but this is kind of ridiculous.
What actually ended up happening was I took the cuffs off, stitched the first one back on, tried it on and discovered that the sleeves still hit in a really oddball spot on me. So I ended up chopping about 5 inches more off of the cuff-less sleeves to bring it closer to my elbow. And then had to leave those cuffs off altogether because the circumference wasn't quite enough to accommodate a wider part of the sleeve.
So here's what it looks like now:
