Cover-up to Shirt

I got this at the grocery store, of all places. The tag said "sundresses/swimsuit cover-ups."  My cover-up does a lot more covering up, and this was way too short to wear as a dress.  It was also see-through.  But I liked the polka dots, so I decided to make it into a shirt.

It had elastic smocking at the top that I removed, and it gave me a ton of extra fabric to work with.  Basically I made a tube, shirred the sides, and made straps out of the excess. I can now wear this without any special bra, which is nice.
