Welcome To The 85th Masterpiece Monday!


 I was getting ready to give away this T-shirt. I liked it, but I was getting a little tired of it.
Then I decided to try to upcycle it into one of those cute off-one-shoulder tops I've seen lately.
What did I have to lose?
 I wanted to leave as much of the ruffle detail as I could. Using a rotary cutter, I cut down, Then cut straight across to the armpit.  I cut the sleeves off and took in the the strapless side, so it wouldn't fall down.
 Here's my "new" top! What do you think?
 Here it is with an antique rhinestone pin added for some bling.

 And here it is with a long necklace. This top is a lot easier to accessorize now, and feels like I bought a new top!

Welcome To The 85th Masterpiece Monday!


  • Hi, how are you? I did a little Summer time T-shirt make-over for my masterpiece this week. 
 I was getting ready to give away this T-shirt. I liked it, but I was getting a little tired of it.
Then I decided to try to upcycle it into one of those cute off-one-shoulder tops I've seen lately.
