I've had this top for years now. It sits in the back of my closet and rarely gets worn. Yet, somehow, its cute pink and purple stripes have saved it from the donate pile time and time again. Well, it's time to turn this into something I might wear more often.
I began by taking in a couple inches on either side and about an inch in each sleeve. Then I chopped off about half the length from the sleeves, folded up new cuffs, and stitched them down.
Finally, I cut off the collar and surrounding fabric, and hemmed up my new neckline. That's it! Just a couple changes, and I've got a top that might actually see the light of day again.
