I started by cutting down the center of the shirt, and tucking/pinning the edges in. I started at the sides of the collar, so the opening would swoop down to make a V. I also tucked in the bottom edges to be more rounded. (Check out the after picture if you don’t know what I mean).
Then, like my first shirt remodel, I used elastic for the sleeves to scrunch them up a bit and add a little feminine touch. I also folded the edge in about an inch to make the sleeves a little shorter.
I added elastic to the back as well to scrunch it up a bit, that way it draped better. I did this by marking the center with some chalk, then cutting a smaller piece of elastic, and when sewing, I sewed the elastic so it was as long as the chalk mark. When the elastic is back to it’s normal length, it brings the fabric with it, gathering it.
