Sewing Stream: Upcycled Ice Cream Top

I cut this top out back in January for the upcycle themed Kid's Clothes Week challenge. However, I ran out of time and moved on to something more necessary at the time. As I was cleaning up my sewing piles last week I stumbled across this and finished it! It's a tab bit on the small/short side now, but I think it will get a couple wears before getting stored away.

The green portion of this top was one of my favorite summer tops from the year we got married (10 years ago!). I have kept in in hopes that it would either fit again or that I could think of something fun to do with it instead. I was able to use the existing hem with the little baubles, which is exciting! I had a difficult time figuring out where to cut to avoid the little beaded sections, but in the end it worked out. FYI: the feed dog does not get along well with seed beads.

Pattern: Oliver + S Ice Cream Dress Pattern
Size: 4
Fabric: Green - upcycled Gap tank top, White - Daydream by Kate Spain for Moda found on clearance at The Intrepid Thread
Changes: I used a snap rather than a button in the back.
