It's a really simple top to make, and as a refashion it's even easier. I picked up this blue sweater from Old Navy a few weeks ago (on clearance for less than $10), and knew it was perfect for recreating this top. Especially when combined with some polka dot chiffon that I snagged at the LA Fabric District for a few dollars.

2 // carefully cut your sweater into a slight hi-low shape.
3 // cut the chiffon hem out of your fabric, making sure the length of both of these pieces is the same length as your newly cut sweater hem. (In the photos above, you can see I cut my chiffon too long so it created some puckering when I sewed them together. I plan to go back and fix it -- Just make sure you cut your chiffon the right length so it lays flat when sewn to the sweater)
4 // with right sides together (RST), sew the front and back chiffon pieces together.
5 // with right sides together, pin the chiffon to the sweater and sew around the entire hemline with a straight stitch (don't pull as you sew).
6. hem the chiffon, then carefully press and you're done!
