Darling Alteration: Polka Dot Collared Button Up Top

Polka dots will never everrr go out of style because the pattern is too adorable and playful. You can say I'm a little bit obsessed. :)


I turned this oversized short sleeve collared polka dot top I found for $2 into a simple sleeveless top.


So so easy, trust me. :) Start by folding the top symmetrically then cut the sleeves and bottom of the top.


You can leave the top the way it is or hem it. I decided to hem the top since I'm OCD about it fraying. Those who don't have a sewing machine can simply use Fray Check to avoid fraying.

If you decide to hem the edges simply fold the edge in once or twice and then sew. Afterwards iron the wrinkles out of it.


Simple as that you have a super cute top! :)


Alterations are really fun and easy. With a little cutting and sewing here and there you get a completely different top.

I wore my floral statement necklace which you can find my DIY here, coral wedges from my haul which you can find here, light destroyed jeans, and cream bandeau.







Cute, comfy, and a little dressy-- just the way I like it.

Well, lovelies, I have to start cleaning the apartment then go shopping for some groceries. I think perhaps I shall be making some cupcakes tonight because I need to practice my baking skillsss. Fun shtuff, yes! Haha. :)

  14. Ooooo I love this!! I love cutting up my clothes and making them into something new... they don't end up looking as pretty as this but it's still better than throwing them away... and you're right... polka dots will NEVER go out of fashion" :-)
