Too Cropped For Comfort

Hello Refashion Co-op. It's Chickie. Today's project was inspired  by the recent T-shirt Surgery series that was posted here. I believe the projects belong to Saga. I had this sweatshirt in a beautiful shade of pale pink. I love the color but the cropped length just doesn't work for me. (Motto: My belly button, my business.)


My solution was to add a piece of this black shirt in the middle of the sweatshirt.


There was black fabric left over so I added some decoration.


And I went to the store. 


Thanks to everyone on this blog for all the inspiration. And thanks for reading too. For more details, check my blog I Can Work With That

I like the new shape much better. I can remember wearing cropped tops but now the longer the better. :-)

I'm so glad you posted this and that I found this blog. I may be able to save some shirts. I hate when they get too short.

I wish I could say the shirts are shrinking but really, I am growing.
