So it gets a big fat chop, right across the middle..
I've fixed up the bottom hem of the top half cut-off Kaftan, and stitched 6 rows of elastic thread, being my first attempt at shirring.
Which becomes a fitted waist, on a 'new' bat-wing top
The bottom cut-off kaftan becomes a sleeveless blouse, by turning the fabric piece upside down, finishing off cut hem, and stitching two lines inwards on the previous kaftan bottom hem. Notice there are two small side slits on the previous kaftan bottom hem? These become armholes.
The second blouse here, is not too dissimilar, from my skirt to top refashion seen here. As a result, I've been left with zero waste fabric with this refashion too. Yay!
