The one bad (and pretty major) thing about buying clothes that you haven’t tried on is that all too often the fit is a little off. As a result, I have a whole cupboard full of clothing that I’ve been meaning to refashion or resize. In particular is this ADORABLE little gold and white striped crop top from A for Arcade which I scored on sale. The only problem: it was way too small around the waist – I couldn’t even button it up! (Sadly it had no problems going round my bust but waist was another story #workouttime #smallbustwoes )

I love the boat neck collar and that it’s not overly tight (though it does pull a little, I haven’t figured that bit out yet) and major love for it being completely work appropriate with a high-waisted pencil skirt! I also put in a slightly curved hemline to mimic the (inverse?) dip hem that’s been so popular on crop tops recently. Plus I totally intended to put in that peek-a-boo slit at the back… or maybe the only zipper I had on hand was a couple too inches too short… you will never know 😉
