Ugly Duckling Blouse Makeover

Remember those two unloved 80s blouses from the sale rail in my previous post?  Well, they both had a rather dramatic makeover.  The jade blouse was slashed under the bustline, sleeves removed and a scarf stitched to the bottom to make a tie front for summer wear.  While the mauve blouse had some ruching stitched round the waistline; sleeves shortened with more ruching and lace trim; and a collar cut from a lace doiley - I was aiming for a more fitted 1940s look.
This was a great experiment as these blouses had absolutely nothing to lose ... in spite of that, pleased with the outcome.  More unloved clothing makeovers coming soon
