Ok, so after trawling through the charity shops and finding lots and lots of little gems I came across an amazing printed dress with matching jacket. Turns out when there is more than one of you that is charity shop obsessed ( All of my house mates), it works well with a two piece like this... However, this amazing jacket has sat and sat in my room waiting to be loved for too long. So as a means of procrastination I decided today to turn it into something even more beautiful that I can wear in the new season.

This is what I made and how I got there!

1. Cut of the old sleeves 
 2. Hem the new holes 
 3. Cut out new capped sleeves and hem
 4. Attach new sleeves
 5. Lower the neck line so the top can be worn either way as a blouse or t-shirt 

 6. Attach some pretty buttons

Hopefully you like my new pretty top, and this is one of the ways I might wear it... I will post an outfit photo when I have worn it!

Let me know what you think!
