DIY Off the Shoulder Blouse

I can’t even tell you how long I’ve been looking forward to this blog post!! I have  jumped on the off the shoulder bandwagon the lyndeestyles way.😂 In other words, I’m just not willing to shell out $30 for a shirt that I can make for under $10!! And trust me, you don’t have to be a master seamstress to do it

Sorry I was too lazy to take pics as I made it but I will link full instructions from another blog. I honesty could’ve have explained it better or taken better pictures than she did!! The only thing is I think it’s a little short to be a dress but that’s just me. I think it’s a nice length to wear with shorts, capris or a skirt.

have to say I’m super thrilled with the results

  1. A size XL dress shirt. I bought mine second hand and I found some super nice quality ones for under $5.  I was tempted to swipe one of hubby’s but I’ll wait til he throws one in the donation pile.
  2. elastic 3/4 inch is good. I got mine at the dollar store
  3. sewing machine
  4. scissors
  5. ruler

As mentioned I will link the instructions below. The tips I would suggest. Measure carefully, my first attempt I cut it too far down. Next tip is to pin. It is a little tricky around the arms

It’s really a matter of cutting off the collar of the shirt in a straight line and sewing a casing around the edge and feeding the elastic through.

I plan on making more of these! I can’t wait! My next one is a pink pinstriped one!

 

 

Have fun and check out this link below for full instructions 😃
