Something for me

I have so many things in my wardrobe that I don't wear for one reason or another... I don't wear this top as it is a little snug around the tummy after bubba #2. Also, I'm not a big fan of long sleeves. So I had a think about why I didn't like it and decided that I would chop off the arms and try to add some pretty details somehow. Once I'd chopped off the arms I cut them into thin strips and made them all roughly the same length. I then pinned them along the neck line so they were all dangling down - a picture of this might have been helpful ( I will do better next time) I then sewed and gathered at the same time. It was super easy and fun. I have had heaps of compliments on it. My non-sewing friends think it looks like it was very tricky!! Ha ha!

Apologies for my face in this picture. I can not take a serious photo!!


  1. Just found you via the wardrobe refashion site. Love the changes you made to the tee. Can you share some details.
    Beautiful little girl!

  2. Just read further into your blog. You have two beautiful daughters. My baby is now 12. The years will fly so fast.

  3. Just got here via Wardrobe refashion! Your family looks like a lot of fun! :)
    Love the "new" shirt too.

  4. Thanks guys. I have a fun family for sure. We are all (well with the exception of my hubby) a little loopy. We love to take silly photos and do silly things. I have a boy and a girl. I would be more than happy to share how I did the T shirt. I will dig out the blue one today and do a set of pictures. Thanks so much for coming over...I am giddy at you all being here :D BIG GRIN

  5. Oooo I love this top and your blog is super sweet! So glad you stopped by so I could discover yours. :)
