I must admit that this tutorial is a bit on the difficulty level but the results are totally worth it!

[VIDEO] Men’s Shirt Refashion | Halter Neck Top Dupe

I was inspired by this designer top by Ulla Johnson, while browsing online recently. When I saw the inverted pleat, I immediately thought back to the men’s dress shirt, as I almost always see a box pleat on the back of them. In case you didn’t know, the reverse side of a box pleat is an inverted pleat.
