Refashion man's shirt to summer top

At the moment I am working on a project that specifically looks at refashioning men's shirts. As the project has just started and is still in the experimental stage, the first set of 10 shirts were turned into 2 dresses, 1 skirt, 2 summer tops, a tote bag and some of the left overs I hand wrapped as flowers for embellishments.

The first top I worked on was this cute summer refashion.

I started with these 10 shirts, all cotton and in various sizes, the top in this refashion is the one in the centre of the image below.

Next I cut off the sleeves, collars, cuffs. leaving the body of the shirts intact.

Following the step by step instructions here, I turned the shirt into this cute little top.
