Summer is winding down for me. I have a couple jobs and both will be picking back up shortly. Since I have had some time on my hands I thought it was a good idea to put together some work clothes before things are in full swing and I don't have the time.
I started with this shirt:
I bought it for $2.00 at a thrift store and it reminded me a bit of the puffy shirt from Seinfeld.
Obviously something needed to be done. I began by removing the ruffle from the neck.
After that, I chopped off the sleeves. Not only is it too hot for long sleeves but they were also a bit too Amish for my style.
Using the ruffle from the neck and some elastic, I created ruffled short-sleeves. Much, much better.
This is the shirt, all finished.
Next, I got started on the skirt.
I picked up this beauty at a thrift store for $2.50. I really liked the colors and print, as usual.
There wasn't a whole lot of work to be done on the skirt. I just had to take in the waist and take some length off the bottom.
I put the top and the skirt together to create my "new" work outfit.
What do you think? Do I look sophisticated and stylish, yet relatable? 'Cause that's what I was going for ;)
