Reconstructing Another Button Down

      Here's another button down that I transformed. This shirt is a pretty basic button down in a comfortable, stretchy fabric. It fit really well, but had horrible, poufy sleeves.

         This time, it was a very quick fix. I took out the sleeve seams with a stitch ripper, ripped off the outdated sleeves, then sewed new seams along the armhole edges. Now, I have a simple, tank button down that's a perfect basic for summer. I like wearing it with the bottom buttons undone and tying the ends in a knot, retro style!
