Hi, I'm new here and this is my first post! I've been looking (as a guest) for quite a few years. Figured I should share my creations. I made this top a few years ago.

The existing shirt (the black patterned piece) used to have a high neckline, long sleeves and no shape. I cut off the sleeves to make it short sleeved and then I used the legs of spandex leggings and added them to the arms. The new arms are now 3/4 length and give the top of the arm a bit of a poof. I also added in a square neckline.

I added a brown, satiny tie on the back to give the shirt some shape. The second layer of the ruffle and the tie are made from the lining of old pants. The first layer of the ruffle is some old faux lace I had lying around.

It's pretty comfortable and pretty cute!

(My first post! - I'm excited!! Cheesy -although it's unfortunate that I can't post photos yet)

That's really pretty! I love the ruffle and the button detail on the back!
