CUT CUT, CUT IT OFF LET IT GO

Shirt - SailorJerry


Sometimes you just need to reach for the scissors and go for it in order to actually wear something nice that has been locked in your closet for too long, even though it may hurt a bit to start the cutting. And it really doesn't take much in order for some items to get a fresh new look and to be able to extend their time of use - try to cut long sleeves in to short for example, add a ribbon or some lace around the new lining, use the old extra sleeve to make a sew-on pocket or a little bow to add on.

Remember this shirt dress? A bit too tight to ever be able to wear and relax at the same time, since the buttons tended to pop at the most critical part flashing my undies to the world, I was on the verge of letting it go at ebay or huuto (I'm so bad at letting things go!), but instead I cut it of to a nice fitted shirt. And then I went out to listen to Marko Haavisto.

Tonight I'll go out and listen to Jussi Syren & the Groundbreakers (but that hasn't really got anything to do with the shirt anylonger).

I really love your blog! I truly adore your dresses, and well everything, but especially the dresses. Thank you for sharing with us all. :-)

That makes a fantastic shirt, I love the details around the shoulders. Looks like this is one time the scissors really paid off :)

Cheers!

i love your haircut

Erica : Thank YOU!

Melancholic Optimist : Yes it was well worth the cut :)

Katja Cintja : Thank you. I keep it rolled during the day and let it out in the evenig, somedays the result is better than other, sometimes it goes flat right after... (and yesterday was a good one :)

Anna : thanks - but damn! Otherwise you could have popped by Lepakkomies too... (but I'm going to take it easy, I have a meeting about a new comission tomorrow so not the smates thing to show up with a sweaty hangover exactly..)

It looks great as a shirt is much more versatile this way!

the freelancer's fashionblog said...

Parapluie : Yes you're right.

Leia said...

Ooh, it looks even better as a shirt! Have you done any posts on how you do your hair and make up? You always look gorgeous :)

Leia : Thank you. For hair you can search my label 'hair', I did some posts during summer. I haven't done any about makeup but everybody's constantly asking for them so I guess I should...

I really love this as a shirt! I think because it was a dress, it is much more fitted and pairs very well with a pencil skirt. Now that you have opened my mind to what a pair of scissors can do, I won't turn down a nice shirt dress because it is too dull on it's own.

Elsei Wright : Great :)

Great job! That shirt looks amazing, I love it!

Sal said...

Totally the right choice. If you're not comfortable in something, altering it can be the perfect solution!

Mademoiselle Balai said...

looking fabulous as always!
i didn't even like it as a dress, to be honest. not in comparison to your other dresses, which are drop dead gorgeous!
and i would love a make up post as well, since i'm not even good at holding a mascara brush :) although i doubt that would improve by you explaining it haha.

The shirt looks great and I think it has got something to do with Jussi Syren. They're both rocking :)

Lady Melbourne said...

I love your tattoos, they are wonderful! do you ever regret that you did them?

Mademoiselle Frou-Frou said...

very cool idea - it's so hard to cut/change an outfit, but it makes sense to salvage it if you can!
very cute shirt!
