I have two things to thank for coming up with this straightforward, charity-shop-friendly DIY project: the wrap top above and this viral vest video - and several permutations thereof - that's been doing the rounds recently.
The process lends itself to all abandoned shirts needing a new home - like, say, your wardrobe - from sheer blouses to Hawaiian patterned horrors from yester-decade (hypothetically speaking, at least). Mine was done on a chiffon blouse, procured from a charity shop for the agreeable price of £2.50.
A #5minuteDIYproject idea - cut a rectangular section out of the back of a blouse, unbutton the remaining front panels and use them as a tie-around arrangement.

The diaphanous nature of the fabric meant that I wasn't happy with using fray check to finish the edges, so I folded the edge back and machine-sewed a zigzag hemming stitch (this does make the project a little more time-consuming to finish but thankfully not much).
