DIY Blouse

I had this fabric for a while now, and decided it was high time I made something beautiful out of it. A blouse seemed just the perfect thing to do.

What you need 
- a T-shirt, a pair of scissors, needle and thread, and some pins

Like all non-professionals, one has to make ends meet. So, for this particular DIY project, choose one of your best fitting T-shirts and cut the fabric accordingly, leaving enough space for seam and a centimeter besides this (in case your measuring was not perfect :) ).

First, cut the front part of your to-be blouse, and then cut the back one (larger than the front part).
Then, go around the two parts and sew all seams so that it is easier for you afterwards.
After this, sew the two parts only at the shoulder level. This is how you will make sure that in case the fabric is too short or too long, you can easily make adjustments. Then sew on the sides.
Cut another piece of fabric in order to make a front band.

Then, sew it on the front side of the blouse. You're done. Now go and show it to the world.
