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!!
