Week Six - Oversized Shirt Downsized

My sister gave me this shirt that fit her awkward and I instantly fell in love with the color. Of course I've made this into a summer shirt, because let's face it.. I am so over winter.. And I live in the south, so really it's not even a real winter. Okay, back on topic. This shirt was just a tad bit big on me.. But I knew I had to save it!  
First I snipped those sleeves.. Because heyyyyyy, another tank top! 
And then I turned it inside out to pin down the sides and cut off the extra fabric.
Next I sewed the sides and the edges of the arm holes. I also took the shoulders up just a bit.( not sure why I didn't snap a picture of that step) .. And here you have it.. My Spring / Summer shirt & I'm wearing it tonight under a cute jacket of course! It's a little snug, but I've been trying to lose a few pounds by actually working out.. So here's hoping it is a little less tight in a couple of months! 
Whoaaaa. Where's my foot!?!? It's there.. Just hiding!
