Refashion: Patterned Button Up

I found this blouse at my local thrift shop a few months ago and just got around to refashioning it.

As you can see, it was completely over sized and had the puffiest sleeves. But I looked past that and focused on the print & fabric quality.

I used another beloved button up as a guide to resize the top, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

blouse / thrifted and refashioned - $4 | similar here (on sale) | and here
white jeans / skinnied by me - $10 | similar here
gold belt / j.crew - $1.50 | similar here | and here
olive peep toes / dsw - gift | similar here
gold earrings / vintage - $10 | similar here | and here

When looking for things to refashion here are a few things to look for:
- Salvageable details like collars, hems, cuffs, and buttons & their holes.
- Fabric you like (both the pattern / color & the feel of it)

What do you think?
