A Quick Modesty Refashion
Just a quick post to show one of my more recent refashions; alas, I took no "before" pictures, but just imagine this shirt without any of the white fabric, and with a neckline that goes halfway down to my belly button (well, don't imagine me wearing it that way, just imagine how sad it was in my closet, never being chosen because of its refusal to comply with my decency standards).
Those who know me well know that I have little patience for shirts that require tank tops or camisoles underneath. Hence why I stopped wearing this shirt. Adding in a faux tank top modesty panel helped with that, but didn't fix the issue completely, so I inserted a far-from-professional-looking single box pleat in the back of the neckline. I also added the sleeve "extensions" because the sleeves were so wide that they didn't help me much.
Now this shirt is much more comfortable to wear! Oh, and I forgot to mention that all the white fabric came from a camisole I found at D.I. for about $3 last summer for such a purpose as this!
