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)

Just beginning To cut/sew

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!
