Pink Polka Dot Top

This $1.50 shirt had a lot going for it. Maybe a bit too much in fact. It fit great, but the hot pink was just a little overwhelming.

I decided removing the sleeves would take away just enough pink to bring it back to awesome. So I chopped the sleeves off and cut bias strips from one of them. I used those strips to create an inner facing to finish off the raw edges, and that was that!

Much better without the sleeves and now you can wear it in the winter with a cardigan. Great job!

I have a vintage skirt that matches your top! Yeh defo better as a sleeveless, yours looks fashionable now, long sleeved shirts look uncomfortable sometimes
