Good Evening everyone!
Last friday, I bought a bunch of stuff at Salvation Army. I bought a huge polo and transformed it to make this:

I feel like it's missing something though, any ideas?
Thanks!

what about three little white buttons on the yoke in a vertical line? That would look cute. Vivifromage does that a lot and it always looks nice. Check her stuff out.

Its super cute. I reckon that you should add some red somewhere. Maybe some cute embroidery of some form on on of the bottom corners.
Great job though. I really like it.

Impressive! It looks great as is. If anything, I'd suggest adding a decorative edge/binding to the neckline and sleeve ends (dark gray velvet maybe?).

Overall, way cute job! Smiley
