DIY shirt (old project)

Inspired by Thrift queen’s post about a DIY shirt, I decided to show you one of my DIY projects too. I made it some time ago, after another wardrobe crisis of the type “too many clothes, but nothing to wear”. On the bottom of the lowest shelf in my closet, I found a black elastic t-shirt with a “V” neckline that I had forgotten when and why I have bought. I put it on and then I found out why it was on the bottom of the lowest shelf – the cleavage was way too deep.
But suddenly, I came upon a bright idea!

I thought that I could sew a panel of a shirt in the front area and make an imitation of a shirt underneath. And since I was formerly inspired by a Moschino design of a tee with a giant tartan bowtie, I made my choice. And it appeared too complicated to tailor a shirt panel , so I just got one of my Dad’s old pleated shirts and cut the front area. I cut the collar too, for a more feminine look. Then, I hemmed a long band of the rest of the fabric and sewed it in the two front sides of the collar, to create the bow tie effect. (I made it wider in the ending for the ‘ribbon’ look)
And Voila! Instead of the boring black shirt with too deep cleavage, now I have a cute shirt and most importantly, I’m so happy that I did it myself and came up with the idea all of a sudden. Because I always like when people think creatively and are not so lazy as just to go and buy whatever comes to their mind.

P.S.: I still have some hardships in combining it in an outfit, though. Any ideas?

P.P.S.: So sorry for the quality of the photos, but I had to make them with my own camera which is a non professional one and the light wasn't very good  too.
