baggy button up shirt, elastic and ribbon
So this is the first project I post, hope you like it. I've seen a few plaid shirts with the empire waists in stores and really liked them. I thought, why not make one and proceeded to the nearest vintage shop where I found this shirt...
Since the shirt I was using was really big I had to take in the sides a bit before adding the empire waist.
(be careful not to make it tight, it has to be at least 1 size bigger then what you'd normally wear)
if you need to do this be sure to pin your shirt inside out evenly on both sides and to pin up gradually past the arm pit and into the under side of the arm(so u don't end up with weird underarms). Sew.
