Adapting blouses for the hot weather

My mum likes to wear layers, a jacket with a top underneath, however she finds that this can restrict her movements and she is getting really fed up with plain vest tops, so rather than throwing out some pretty blouses I decided first to unpick the cuffs.

I ended up having to cut the sleeves off, to make the tops more comfortable and they look a lot prettier than the vest tops do.

I'd like to say it was a 5 minute job, but with the material being so fine and with hand sewing each sleeve took around 20 minutes.
