My Moms 50th birthday is tomorrow and yesterday I STILL had no clue what to get her!! My brother got her a Laptop... HA! no way was I going to try and out spend him. So since I've been lurking around the reconstruction board Ohh-ing and Ahh-ing all of your beautiful creations I decided to try and create something lovely for my mom for her trip to the sunny Florida coast. My parents go almost every year(now that us kids are grown and out of the way, HA! SOOO not fair... but thats neither here not their) And what is a trip to the beach without a Hawaiian print Shirt??? Their cut isn't so flattering for us ladies to I took this Mens size XL shirt that I got for $2.50 and the thrift store yesterday and made it into this!!!
Well this "Before" shot isn't much of a Before since I forgot to take it Before I started... oh well.
however you can see what and approximatly where I cut off.
And heres the after... it still buttons, though not all the way because of the hem at the top.
Overall it was quickly made, and even more quickly thought up so I'm really pleased at how well it turned out. I almost hate to give it away, but i'll deffinantly be on the look out for another hawaiian shirt to make another for myself!!
Thanks for looking!! and comments welcome!
