flaw in sewing!!!

I am trying to make a shirt! I forgot about it for a while but decided to work on it. One side however is missing a huge chunk. The bottom right corner looks as if I cut out a huge square piece (which I dont recall lol). It would look ridiculous if I sewed on a new piece to replace it. Cutting off the other side to even it out wouldnt look right either because I'd have to basically sew on material to finish the length of the "shirt". Any suggestions?

  • I have seen some patch work type blouses out there. Could you make the bottom out of another print and then add a breast pocket of the same print? Maybe make it empire waisted of the new fabric? Google patchwork blouse and see what ideas come up. GL!!

  • I reposted my answer because of spelling error. Anyway.........Empire waist is when the waist is right below the bust. It is higher up than a regular waist. I just Googled patchwork blouses and there are some adorable ideas! I would love to know how you make out (could you message me?) I hope this ends up to be a fun project!!
