ah!! spark of innovation much?

I was browsing on and I saw the cutest AlexanderWang shirt:

the concept is so adorable; but it was a $525 shirt.
little poor me can not afford something like that.
the shirt is redesigned from a collar blouse
so I went to my mom's old collar shirt/blazer, and look at how cutee it turned out!!
It's easily done by tying the sleeves to either the front or back.
after & before
& it is my bro's bday in 3 hours! I made him a shirt; changed it into a V-neck, added a chain, sewed patch letters and wrote in the "card" on the back:) hope he loves it! happy bday bro; 1 9 !so i was SUPER duper excited to upload this post; hope you guys enjoyed it=) you won't be hearing from me in a while because i will be burried in books till I'm done my exams!
