This was a sweatsuit top like this one, only with horizontal rainbow stripes. (one day I will remember a before photo) Why they make clothes this unflattering I couldn't tell you.
I cut it apart and turned the stripes vertical.

Then I opened the sleeves and added them on the sides. It is finished with a black knit yoke and wide elastic.
The hem was next to impossible, but totally worth it.
If you look in the bottom right of the last photo, you will get a glimpse of how I do all my schoolwork, have a full time job, and manage time for this stuff.
Please comment away!

Everything is moving fast
In the headlights glaring light
By this beat pumping full blast
We will dance through the night

That's really cute. I also wonder why old ladies submit themselves to such terrible clothing.
