Thrift and charity shops are bursting with frumpy blouses just begging to be refashioned. Luckily most people don’t see the amazing potential and blow right past those dowdy retro beauties:
Check out just how easy it is to transform a less than stellar button-up shirt with my Simple No Sew Vintage Blouse Refashion:
Bask in frumpiness of that blouse: 4 shoulder pads and a decorative bow tie!
It’s so simple to update a dowdy vintage blouse and make it on trend once again without sewing a stitch:
Step one: Remove any excess schnicky schnacky (in this case that silly bow tie)
Step two: Remove the shoulder pads (why did this blouse have 4?!)
Those blast from the past blouses from the 1980’s are immensely improved by removing the shoulder pads but I wasn’t quite done no-sew-transforming this one and decided to revisit my spray dye tutorial:
A few sprays + a wash and I now have this fab wardrobe addition:
To create a groovy V-neckline I simply leave the top 2 buttons undone and fold the edges inside.
Don’t leave that drab blouse at the thrift shop (or the back of your closet), see the potential and transform it!
