Whatever Wednesday: Christmas shirt refashion

I asked what people wanted to see more this year and several said refashions.  So here is refashion that I did!

 
This is how I made it:
1) I got this Christmas shirt for $2 on clearance
2) I cut out the design and hemmed the neck to a scoop/v neck
3) I then made the sleeves 3/4.  I hemmed those and gathered about 3 inches on them with elastic thread.
4) With the fabric from the sleeves, I cut out some flowers.  I actually used my Epic 6 and nesting blossom die cut to cut the fabric, it worked pretty well.  
5) I then sewed all the flowers onto the shirt.
6) I then glued some pearls onto the flower
And that's it!  Not too bad for a $2 shirt, right?
Sorry for the dark picture, self portrait....

That's really nice. I don't think I would ever have thought to cut out a design on a shirt like that, but it makes so much sense. I'm going to keep my eye out now.:)
