It IS Easy Being Green; A T Shirt

Hello Refashion Co-op. My project today is so simple that if you blink, you might miss it. It started with this green T shirt. I got it from a clothes swap I went to with a few friends. None of us thought the original strap across the chest was a great idea. What is it, why is it there? 

I basically cut it off. It was a great basic top with out half of a beauty pageant sash at the neckline. I couldn't just cut off the front of this knot detail. I trimmed and tucked the front of the sash inside and added a few hand stitches to secure it.

Here it is finished and simplified. I love the color so I am glad I could save it from the reject pile.

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.

Your top is so cute now. Not sure what they were thinking with the original design. :-)

Thanks Cindy. I guess someone wanted to make a plain T more exciting. haha
