When I got home and looked up men's Burberry shirts on their website, there wasn't a single one going for less than $250. This, combined with the fact that the shirt is made up of the softest flannel ever (*sigh*), motivated me to find a refashion tutorial instead of sacrificing it to the purse lining gods.
Luckily, I found the perfect tutorial for retrofitting a men's shirt to fit my girlish figure over at JLTFK. I'm by no means a sewing expert--I know just enough to be able to use a sewing machine comfortably--but this tutorial was straightforward and easy to follow, so you should definitely check it out if you've ever gotten the urge to tailor something but don't know how to begin. My seam ripper was my friend when I made mistakes, and I used a shirt that I already had in my closet for further reference when I couldn't quite figure out how big the make the darts.
Even though it's too short to wear on it's own (lest I bare my midriff every time I throw my hands in the air), I'm currently wearing it as a loose cover-up over a tank top, and it looks great.
