So Much Purple #3

Hello Readers. I am still in my purple refashion phase. Todays post started with a sparkly purple shirt. As you can see from the picture below I had 2 purple tops with sparkle on my refashion rack. Does anyone really need 2 purple sparkle shirts in their wardrobe? I don't think so.
I wanted to use the sleeves from this purple top and attach them to the floral button-down shirt you see below. I know what you're thinking. Why not just wear the purple top under the floral shirt? Why bother cutting and sewing. Just put the clothes on and go about your day, right?
I thought about doing that. I just didn't like the sparkles with the faded denim floral look. I didn't like how the sparkles showed from the armholes either.
So I simply cut off the sleeves and pinned them to the floral shirt. This will be the easiest refashion in the world. I will be done in 3 minutes. No big deal right?

Something went really wrong. I couldn't figure it out. It was super tight. Like difficult to put on tight. Like I couldn't button it properly tight.
After careful examination, I found that I had gotten some of the shirt caught in my sewing. I just had to pick out some stitches and stitch over that part of the sleeve. Well that's easy. No big deal right?

Something else went really wrong. I tore the shirt by accident while I was removing some stitches and now it had a hole in the back. A very noticeable hole. I wish I could say that I handled it like a mature adult. I wish I could say I was an example of grace under pressure. I was not either of those things. I got really mad. I said mean things to the shirt and I told the shirt I never wanted to see it again.
I still had the body of the sparkly purple shirt. I guess I could wear the sparkles with this purple plaid.
(Yes, I had even more purple clothes.)
So much purple, y'all.
Thanks for reading about my failed refashion. It doesn't always work. Things fall apart. Life is like that. Now, go try to make something fun for yourself.

Ha ha, not every sewing project works out well.
That's life, right?
