DIY: t-shirt to dolman top

Description of Photo
i've been feeling super burned out lately.  maybe i need a vacation from vacation.  this past weekend, i finally had a weekend of nothing, i mean no birthdays, baby showers, weddings, dinners.  it was really all about me, and it felt good.  so i used this time to clean up, do loads of laundry, and catch up on crafting.

i got this Warriors t-shirt back in 2008-2009 season.. when I went to the opening game with the homies! for the past 6 years it's served as a great sleeping tee, but i thought it was time i refashioned and let this shirt hit the streets.

i found this great and easy tutorial from the beautiful and talented, Laura, over at Trash to Couture.

With some snips here...

Blue Dots: Cut and then sew together
Red dots: Sew only
sorry it's difficult to see.. note to self for later posts

and some running through a sewing machine here, and cutting off the excess side fabric after you sewed up the red dots...

i got this new casual shirt that i can wear in public and represent.
