"New" T-Shirt

I finally decided I needed to jump on the Anthropoligie T-Shirt Look-A-Like bandwagon. I had an old pink Old Navy t-shirt that I just never wore because it had no pizazz. So I cut the sleeves off. Now, I marvel at all the great bloggers who do fabulous tutorials with amazing pictures. Uh...that would NOT be me, LOL! So by the time I remembered to take a "before" picture, I had already whacked off one sleeve. Here's the one-armed shirt:
Then I cut the neck off and made it lower. I used  my rotary cutter and ruler to cut the sleeves into strips, which I gathered. I just kinda did my own thing as far as what to do with the gathered strips, and pinned them into place until I had an arrangement I liked. (Notice that while I hemmed the back neck edge, I haven't hemmed the armholes - oh well, I'll get around to that eventually - besides, a jacket will be covering it up - I'm too old to be going around sleeveless unless I'm in Hawaii where that rule doesn't seem to apply, LOL!!!)
I used the neck that I cut off to fashion into a rosette for the top in the middle. I think it turned out great and I can't wait to wear it to work next week!
All the t-shirts in my house are VERY, VERY afraid about now.....
