So, I've had this huge polo shirt I got from 'youth in government' day when I was in high school for about ten years.  It was time something was done with it or else it was going to be gone.  I figured I'd make something up as I went along since I didn't like the thing anyway.  I think it turned out cute and I plan to try this design again on something in a better color/fabric

Here it is before (inside out so you can't see the chest logo)

Finished product!



Even with the folded over collar area, you could still see the logo through, so that's why I put the flower on.  I ripped apart an embellished hair thing to make it.  I really like the finished product.

This is great!  How did you do the gathering in the front?

The gathering happened because the shirt was so wide.  I sewed up 4" of the arm holes as well and then folded the weird sticking out part that was created because of that forward and sewed there.

That is a horrible description and I think i might actually post a tutorial if I make this or something similar again.

I'm so glad you liked it!
