Try it on and see how wide you want the upper "bib" part to be, when it's buttoned. Then cut two strips up the front.
Lucky me, I didn't have to measure, because my shirt has lines and pleats. So I just cut with four pleats on each side, straight down the line.
This is what it should look like now.
It's all laid out, ready to sew, but I need to do my laundry first! And I have a lot of laundry to fold, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to finish this tonight. I'd also like to put eyelet lace along the bottom, but that will have to wait for a store-run. I'll post this again when it's completely finished.
I think this would be especially nice if you have old blouses from a great-grandma that you can't wear. What better way to use them daily, remember someone you love, and give new memories to something special?
