Description

I bought this shirt in a thrift store, because I thought the printed fabric was funny… (It’s actually cocktails).
I cut the sleeves and added a button (from the pocket that I took of) to tighten the waist on the back… Or on the front!
I don’t really know what looks better, I guess it depends on the occasion…

It was very easy, and I think it looks nice now! I’m not sure I’m gonna leave it like that though, I might change it again later… When I get more ideas!

    Very creative! It looks great, I’ll be stopping at the thrift store tomorrow to find a shirt to upcycle.
