A few days ago, I went to a 2nd-hand clothing store and bought a few things, which included this white blouse. I bought it because I needed a new one, and I really love the fabric. It looks so much like crepe ! I also really liked the cuffs, but I did not really like the length of the sleeves. So, I decided to alter the sleeves !
It was very simple to do. First, I measured how long I wanted the sleeve to be. I pinned and then cut the fabric with a little seam allowance. Then, I took the cuffs, and cut them off the sleeves with 1,5 cm seam allowance. I pinned the cuffs on the shortened sleeves, and created a little pleat at the top because the sleeve was bigger than the cuff.
Now, I have a new white blouse, and I think it looks quite authentic if paired with the right skirt/suit/sweater etc. What do you think ? (The sleeves look quite uneven-but they are not !)
And here a little question : Would anyone be interested in a tutorial on how to make a bolero suit ? Like the right drawing:
