I'm pretty much a sucker for ruffles and buttons.
I chopped off the bottom half (check back for Part 2 when I remake the bottom half!) to turn this baby into a shirt.
I found this fantastic strategy for hemming knits that I absolutely love: http://www.sweetnsassygirls.com/2011/07/an-easy-way-to-hem-knits.html. Shout out to this blog, this strategy is ingenious and super easy to do. I gave it another shot on this shirt (last attempt was a bit uneven...)
I folded and serged the hem, then topstitched it.
And ta-da! I really love this one, and the long sleeves will be perfect for the summer (San Francisco weather...if you don't live here, don't even ask).
Stay tuned for Part 2! I have plans for the leftover bottom piece...
