Shrugged!

I was feeling a lack of nice cardigans/shrugs to wear in the summer. Here, it sometimes gets cold even in the middle of summer, so I dove into my stash of Tees from Old Navy ( I bought a bunch during their 40% off everything sale last time) and found a XXL sized Tee.
Here's what it became:

The back:


This refashion took much longer than I had expected, mainly because of rolled hems all around the edges and
also because of my reluctance to redo sleeves an armholes. Next time I won't try to sneak my way out of proper fit...it doesn't work and doing it later wastes a lot of time and makes it more error prone.
However I'm glad that finally it all worked out and my wardrobe got a much needed shrug!
Totally wearable.
