College Reunion NO SEW

I was a bit stumped by this .99 cent numba...



I liked the fit, the color, and I really like the sleeves... but I didn't like the length or the elastic at the wrist. So, I made a couple of amputations.


I usually finish my raw edges but this material didn't fray at all and I actually really loved the way it turned out. So, I left it just like this! :)


No sewing machine required.


I wore this to a coffee shop and met up with a former college friend of mine.


She brought her old yearbook. I brought my scrap book, and we reminisced for hours :) 


To read more back story to my random college reunion, check out my original post. Until next time, Happy NO sewing :)

This is so cute in the after.

Super cute! I can even see the sleeves being trimmed up to more of a petal shape (even though they don't overlap at the top). Great color of you too!

Great improvement, it works so much better as a top than a dress!
And I love the sleeves in the after! Color looks fabulous on you..
Reminiscing with old friends is such a joy!!! :)
