Hexagonal Upcycle

Hello, friends!

I have a new upcycle to share with you today! It’s one of my recent thrifting finds! I got this chiffon (I absolutely LOVE chiffon) button up at a Goodwill one fine afternoon. The color and nifty hexagonal pattern caught my eye. Of course the fit and the style.. well not so much.

It came equipped with these lovely shiny cuff links as well!

So to make this work out better for me, I took in the sides a bit, chopped off the sleeves, and then turned the cuff links into more buttons on the front. (The shirt has hidden buttons behind the strip of fabric down the front.)

After:

Much better yes? I think so!

On another note, I recently got a Tumblr so if you would like do follow me! Also, check out my Etsy shop if you like pretty things!

Until next time,
