Confession: I have a growing pile of vintage fabrics and clothes that are waiting to be sewn, mended or reinvented. I'm no seamstress, so I stick with really easy transformations like this skirt I made awhile ago.
Anyway, I found this huge long-sleeved polka dot shirt for one dollar (thank you thrift stores for dollar days). I liked the silk material, the oversized print, and the buttons in the back. The plan was to shorten the sleeves, but then my sewing machine went crazy and I completely screwed them up. So instead I took off the entire sleeve, and brought in the sides a few inches.
My closet is full of stripes, so the polka dots are a welcome change.
