I wish I had taken before pictures and Pictures along the way. But honestly I wasn't sure how this would turn out. So here is a shirt exactly like the one I cut up only a different color.
men's extra large
I used the extra for the ruffle and flowers.
I kept the original hem but ruffled the sleeves and gave them a new hem.
Since this was my first refashion of this kind I call it a success! A few tips, try on your shirt before cutting extra and use a favorite shirt as a pattern. plus take into account the stretchiness of both fabrics. And last try on before deciding where to place flowers. I would have liked mine a little higher.
