This design is something I came up with for my store in Montreal. I wanted to do a reworked top that was cute and easy to wear, and I kept finding these secretary blouses that were either too big, too boxy or just to frumpy to be worn as-is.

So I came up with the idea of chopping the sleeves short, leaving the edges raw and adding some elastic for a poof sleeve look. I then added some elastic to the back body, and made a little matching belt using the cuffs of the sleeves and the leftover bits from the middle of the sleeves.

This shirt has been really popular with some of our most stylish customers, what a compliment! I've seen it worn with skirts, jeans, runners and heels. I've also seen it worn with or without the belt, or even with the belt worn as a sort of neck ruffle\/scarf.

Each "Secretary Blouse" is one of a kind, as it is made from a vintage top. This particular blouse is a deep burgundy colour, very rich looking. The fabric is a semi-sheer polyester chiffon. The fit is a small.

When looking at the measurements keep in mind that this is a blouse made of non-stretch fabric, so the listed measurements should be 3"-6" looser than your body measurements, except for the shoulder which should be pretty close to your actual body measurements. The measurements are:

Bust: 37"
Waist: 30" (the belt can make it tighter)
Bottom opening: 35"
Shoulder width seam to seam: 14 1\/2"
