This shirt was a man’s size large, yet a little snug for my husband, due to how every manufacturer sizes. So, SCORE for me!! 🙂 I took the shoulders in, kept the sleeve curve the same in order to allow me to provide the feminine look I desired, took the button from the sleeve cuffs and used them on the sleeve hem for a decorative touch, took in the sides, gave it a straight hem and VIOLA!! A feminine transformation of a gorgeous plaid shirt.

AFTER: My favorite part of this “New Life” remake, is that of the Puffed sleeves which I tapered the sleeve hem and added the buttons from original shirt cuff for a decorative touch.
