Pink Star Burst Shirt Refashion

My youngest sister loves the color pink...in any tone or shade.  A couple of months ago, I bought a long sleeved pink shirt and made this shirt for myself, but then my sister borrowed it.  I haven't seen it since.  I should have known.  Oh well, at least I know the shirt is well cared for and loved very much.  
Here is what I did. I cut off and opened up the sleeves
Then, I cut many long strips 
Pinned them on the shirt like so
Sewed them on...some I just pulled as I sewed and others I gathered as I sewed.  Notice the neckline...well, I figured since the neckline had a raw finish to it so could the sleeves. So the sleeves have a raw, rolled look to them.  They go well with the rest of the shirt.
Added a button and hand tacked the strips just so that they would not fall over the button.  I also cut the strips down the middle...just to give me more strips to tack down because I love extra work.  In hind sight, I wouldn't cut them further. 
 I marked them with little hearts where I tacked the strips down.
And that is it. 
Here is the only time I wore the shirt...for a photo shoot.

The shirt appears in many shades of pink in all these photos but I promise it's all the same shirt.  I blame it on the different camera angles and lighting...and playing on Picnik for this.  But to my sister, I'm sure it's all the same...they are all shades of pink and proof the the shirt was destined for her. Funny how that worked out.

Wow, I love it! What a great idea. I always see cute embellished shirts and wonder where to get the matching fabric and now I know - just cut off long sleeves!

Amazing job!! I just love what you've done, I wish I had that sort of inspiration. Although I'm sorry about losing your shirt, lol. You should post your sister's email, looks like a lot of appreciative mamas on your comment feed would help blow up her inbox to help you get it back. :P

I would love, love for you to come link up with me at Freestyle Friday.
