hi all! been a long time since i've posted a project...
this was a HUGE, long-sleeved shirt my dad brought me back from Japan. apparently they put random english words on shirts, not unlike how we get random japanese symbols tattooed on us without knowing their meaning... so i thought that was pretty cool so i reconned this shirt into a cute strapless shirt dress to wear over jeans! yay!
