Then & Now - Simplicity 3634

There's nothing like a workhorse top that works well with separates or with a suit. This top has been in heavy rotation throughout the year and over the years.



Then - 2012 and 



Now - 2014
Hard at play before it was refashioned.....




Here it is still working hard in my wardrobe. However, it was time for new life,
Assessed it, Cut It, Sewed It & Rocked It.



The latest refashion was easy, cut the sleeve just a smidgen before the armhole seam.  Serged the raw edges, flip to the inside and final stitched.

  A Tank Top was Borne.



Until then Have a Great Week

Very nice. You know how to re fashion clothes whether they are DIY or rtw. The print and colors are my style too.

I enjoy reading your refashion post. Every time you refashion a garment it looks better than the original. Very inspirational.
