Trying to do a few more projects before the quarter descends upon me.... doom doom doom.....  Here is a shirt I re-conned from a long sleeve hoodie that was always too short in the torso and a 2x Threadless shirt.  I loved the design, and figured I could buy it big and play with it.  I like how it turned out, but I feel like maybe it needs something more.... Opinions? 
(Sorry it isn't the best pic, no one else was home.)

I have a ton of fabric left from the green shirt, and some neon green lace too.  I was thinking to at least edge the sleeves...  Comments, critiques and ideas welcomed!

I'm a medium aged procrastinator, with a room full of craft supplies! 

I've got a wist and a pinterest: http://www.wists.com/cute_anarchy

I think cap sleeves would look cute

I agree about the sleeves.  I think a little more green (on the sleeves) would balance it out nicely.  Plus, the cooler weather is comin!  I forgot to mention how it looks like it was meant to be together!  Great choices!

I concur about the sleeves.  I love that shirt too!   Cheesy

I think that it would look really cool if you cut the hem and add the lace that you have right there; other than that, I don't see any other improvement!
nicely done!
