Recently my closet has been less than exciting to me. A few of my favorites finally kicked the bucket and it's too hot (and humid) for cardigans at the moment. I love cardigans.
I found this shirt--surprise--at the thrift store. I thought the robin egg blue was cute, and I always love polka dots. I love finding things in larger sizes as there's more wiggle room to alter it.
I took in quite a bit on the side seams and then created some fun gathered sleeves. I probably should have taken the shoulders in a bit more, but I can live with it. I added elastic to the end of the sleeve to pull it together. I still need to take up the hem (Corey said with the current length it looks like an art smock), so in the meantime I've been wearing it tucked in.
