DIY Festival top from men's shirt.


Supplies: Men's shirt or oversized blouse
chain, elastic, string.




DIY instructions below.




Cut shoulder seams and sleeves off.  If you have a collar
create a scoop neckline by removing the collar. 


Fold  the shoulder seams, back, and sleeves over 1/2" and press. 

Sew along the raw edge to create a casing. 


Pull a chain, string or elastic through the fronts and back using safety pin. You will need to adjust length according to your measurements. You will want to then attach the chain or string together to create one continuous loop. I used a set of plier and molded the chain links together.


You will cut the side seam of the sleeve as long as you need to fit with ease. This will be the new arm hole and where you will attach to the bodice.


Attach the sleeves with the new armhole by sewing right sides together with the bodice, front and back.

Tip: you can add elastic to the sleeves if you don't want them to hang to low. Do this before attaching to the bodice.

Attach the chain with pliers.
