No sew, started with a pair of really baggy pants from no boundaries in the mens department. The waistband itsself fit me a little too tightly and I didn't like how high it came on me. They were baggy and really high waisted and low crotched, so... I was going to cut them up for scrap material and then I said...how can I salvage this?
And I did.

If anyone wants a tutorial, I'd be happy to do it, but I don't want to hurt your eyes with lots of reading material if you knew how to do it...

anyway... pics, sorry for the terrible quality.

Note, if you can't see I have ties going up each side of the back of it.
Oh and if you see grey spots, that's my camera--the shirt is perfectly clean.

Oh and one more thing: sorry for my ugliness, no makeup and hair all crappy looking--it was about 4:00AM

Crappy view of the sleeves (cut slits, pulled a piece of lace through, tightened like ruching, to make puffy sleeve effect):

Can't believe it was made from pants! Very cool!  Looks rough and tumble and perfect for the fabric!
