I was inspired by this blog to do some sewing.

I bought this really cute shirt in Japan.  I think it was part of a set.  Unfortunately, upon additional attempts to wear it I found that it was made for someone with little to no boobage.  (I thought I had little!)

Today I turned it into one of those Japanese overshirts that I love so much.

Next, I bought this shirt from  Unfortunately, it came with a tiny hole due to some machine error I'm sure.  Well, since it was an overseas purchase bought on clearance, it wasn't worth the cost to send it back.  I pulled up the fabric to add an additional pleat.  (The shirt came with about three pleats in the side.)  You'd never know!

Anyway, I'm glad I got that done this morning.  It makes me wish I wasn't so broke so I could sew something!
