I wasn't planning on entering this contest, but all of that changed yesterday morning!  I was at a loss as to what to get for my friend Cinthya for her birthday, which we were celebrating at a local bowling alley.  I went to the mall intent on finding a vintage style bowling shirt and came up empty handed.  Then I realized that I could just make one out of another shirt and headed off to Salvation army!  Came away with a couple of shirts to play with, and this:

I'm a frilly mess that's not getting any action!


2 hours later and Voila!  Upcycled Bowling shirt:




My friend loved her shirt!  It was the first time I'd attempted anything like this, so I was excited.  I even made bias tape, another first, to edge the sleeves.


Red is her favorite color.  This was a lot of fun!

Great job  Cool! Is the new shirt the same size as the original, or did you change the size with the red fabric?
