Here's a cute look that you can easily make out of an old shirt -
Just cut off the sleeves, and you have a new vest. I have seen this a lot lately with denim shirts and jackets. You can belt it to make it look a little more feminine. I don't have any old denim, but I'm wondering if it would work equally as well with my husband's gray shirt (that he has given to me for my sewing pleasure) or my old leather jacket. I'll let you know.
