  1. I did a similar refashion last year and wore it all summer. Such a useful addition to my wardrobe! You have inspired me to look out another old shirt and make another.

  2. Omgosh, this is awesome! You did a fantastic job and turned it into something I would totally love to wear this summer. Thanks for the upcycled idea!
