Unfortunately I failed to take a before pic but imagine shoulder pads and giant grandma huge top made to wear with leggings.

I think I failed at awesomness. But it is wearable. It still keeps clutching at its grandmaesque roots.
Let me know what you think.

thanks

I really like it. Now it's not grandma-esque, it's vintage! Grin

It looks awesome, I love everything about it. The clasps on the front look great on it!  Cheesy

Thanks, I think I can't shake the image of it as it was. But your responses are changing my mind. The clasps are original to the shirt, I moved the top one to the side of the new collar made from the bottom of the shirt. It is 3/4 length sleeves because they were to short so I had to go shorter(long arms).

I think it's amazing! I would LOVE a shirt like this. It's Jackie O meets Audrey Hepburn. Very, very cool! And what a wonderful way to re-use. I love the silhouette, the collar and the sleeves. Believe me, no-one seeing this shirt for the first time has any inkling of it's hideous past!
