I cut an inch or two off of the sides of the shirt and the bottom hem of the shirt came off as well.
Then I found some pretty brown colored fabric I had to match the shirt and
I used my cut as a pattern to cut 2 matching pieces of what would be my inside fabric.
Then I started pinning and sewing things into place I used the bottom hem of the shirt to reinforce the purple lace straps.
When I cut the sides of the shirt I had enough of the ruffle part to add in an inside pocket. So I pinned and sewing in a matching pocket for the inside.
I pinned somemore and sewed again, getting the outside and inside fabrics lined up just right.
