I've been lusting over this top from Cacharel for a while now, so today I set myself a task to make one. I just used an old blouse, cropped it and used elastic to cinch the waist. It was really quite simple and I'm more than happy with the results.
The design is a little different because to bring the shoulders in (as per Cacharel version) would have required me to restructure the whole blouse. I think next time I'll just begin from scratch.
This is just a little styling suggestion, how cool are those shorts? I think they're old boys swimming trunks, I got them at an op shop for like $2.50. The boat shoes are Stegman and the sunglasses are unknown.
I have many more DIY ideas to attempt within the next month before I return to uni. I look forward to sharing my successes and failures with you!
