Blinded by the (Neon) Light

Hello Refashion Co-op. I found these neon corduroy pants at a clothes swap. Neon seems like a summertime color and corduroy seems like a wintertime fabric.
 I also found this neon shirt and was overwhelmed by the blinding color. 

I decided to make shorts for myself. 

The corduroys were too big around the waist so I made some tucks in the back. I made the tucks continue down behind the back pockets. 

I decided this shirt would coordinate with the shorts but be a lot easier on the eyes. It was too long and the V-neck was too low. I used a quick no-sew fix to make it fit me. I cut the sleeves and the neckband off. That left a tank top shape.

I made cuts across the shoulder straps and tied them together. By adjusting the knots I could adjust the fit as I wanted. This raised the neckline and made the armholes smaller until the shirt fit.
