That is SO AWESOME.  I've never figured out how to make any polo be anything I thought was cool before.  I'm inspired!

I had a go at making a tutorial in paint if any one is interested about how i made it. here it is!


to resize my top i simply took a fitted top of mine and cut round it. leaving room for hemming.



Hope its all okay! if you need any help feel free to ask!

My old rugger shirt from school will be perfect for this project! Just the right colour and everything (and all I have to do is cut off the sleeves Smiley )

Really cute top! Did you add anything in the arm warms to make them stay up? Or is the fabric really stretchy and stays-put?
