Anthropologie Inspired Shirt

I had bought this long sleeve shirt on sale and wanted to transform it into something for summer.   The first thing I did was cut off the sleeves.

Then I found a cute shirt on the Anthopologie website that I thought was cute and wanted to do something similar.

So I used one sleeve to drape from one shoulder along the neckline and the other sleeve I gathered and attached to the other shoulder.  What's that called, ruching? If so then that's what I did.

I thought for a shirt that I bought for next to nothing to turn it into this, was pretty exciting.


  1. Perhaps this should call for a challenge ... How many looks can be created with cutoff sleeves !

    It looks great.

  2. Very cute. THat is a nice color on you, too.

  3. Pretty!!! You look gorgeous in it. Lisa's right, great color.

  4. Super cute!!! Love the color too

  5. Your t-shirt is just darling! I am now wondering how I could do that on a very plain neckline of a dress. It would be so cute!

  6. Thanks everyone! I think it turned out pretty cute and it was so easy too.
