Button up Recon

I made this jacket earlier this fall from a polka dotted button up shirt my mom sent me.  It didn't fit me very well so I cropped it off at the waist, cut a circular neckline, added darts, cut the sleeves out of the arm holes then cut the sleeves in half.  I then reinserted the new quarter sleeve into the armhole and added gathers for fullness.  Then I added facing to the "new" jacket  and switched out the buttons!  Ya'll have a great day!:)

I was going to say "cute," but it seems the others beat me to it. How about adorable, charming, or delightful? ;)
