no-sew polka dot top refashion

So it's Monday, and I (Jessica--hey that's me in the picture below! Hi!) have been sick and laying around in bed all weekend. So in the spirit of laziness, today I bring you a refashion that doesn't even require sewing. It barely qualified as a blog post! But hey, it's Monday.

This t-shirt refashion is another super easy fix that requires no sewing. Remember my slouchy tee I made just by cutting it up? This is another project you can do using only your scissors! Because sometimes sewing is just not necessary. Or I'm feeling lazy. Or both.

I got this polka-dot top for free from a friend, and I liked the swingy cropped shape a lot. But it had giant puffed sleeves. I do not do puffed sleeves. Even though I'm mostly not a "girly" girl, there are times I will indulge in some girliness. But puffed sleeves on me are not one of those indulgences, ever. They look awful on me, and they scream fussiness which I just can't handle. I was sad to have to give the shirt back, until I realized something really obvious:

And you get...ta da!

I actually did something a lot like this to my daughter's long-sleeved t-shirts last summer, in order to make them warm weather appropriate. So of course this should have occurred to me earlier. Oh well, at least I got a cute top out of it eventually! I blame being sick for my brain not working quite as quickly as it normally would.
