Silk Shirt Modifications

I recently found a 100% silk shirt at a $5 brown bag sale. (I also found many other goodies, and I plan on telling you about some of them soon. :)) The shirt was quite big and very 90's, complete with Velcro for the shoulder pads to be attached. :)

I am not one to do modifications on my clothes often. I am not very good at alterations, and I just avoid getting clothes that need to be altered.

As you can see in the pictures, I didn't do anything fancy with this shirt. But now it is a type of shirt that I would be willing to wear. Not only willing, but excited, because it is 100% silk! I don't know why I should be excited about that, but I am. :)

I am the kind of woman who gets excited about things like natural fibers, and such. When I find cashmere, angora rabbit, or lambs wool sweaters, real leather shoes and belts, and 100% silk shirts they make my  thrift-shopping-day! :)

It looks like it turned out very well! I love doing alterations that make a big difference in the end result like that. I need to get to work soon on my pile of things needing altered. :)

Nice! I recently got a sweater, intended for Wesley but it was too short on him, so I took it in on the sides and arms and ended up with a "chunky sweater" that I now love. I'll have to send you a picture, I think you'd like it :)
