Here's a quick update. School just keeps bringing waves and waves of work, so I haven't gotten much done. In addition, Operation JSK has been put on hold in favor of fixing up my blouse. As I've mentioned before, it has a tendency to bunch up over the waistbands of skirts. Even though it's not made out of quality material, it's still a nicely shaped blouse. I want to make it useful until I get around to purchasing some nice fabric to make another one.
I've been debating with myself on how I wanted to fix this problem. However, most of my ideas seemed to be more effort than this cheapie experiment blouse was worth. I thought of ripping out sections of seams and sewing in waist ties, but I always pushed this idea aside because it just sounded so permanent if something went wrong. Then, a couple of days ago, I noticed something on Innocent World blouses. Their waist ties are detachable! Brilliant! If the waist ties look wrong, or don't do their job and just add bulk I can simply snip off the buttons and have the same old shirt once again!

Hopefully, I can get this ball rolling Friday! (I also hope I have enough leftover fabric *crosses fingers*)
