Stripes and Color Pop Pocket Shirt - Tutorial

Another great shirt floating around pinterest is this sweet color block and striped shirt.  However, the link is broken, so I have no idea who made it. 
I came across two brand new shirts at Goodwill, one striped and one solid, and decided that I could just make the shirt myself. It was the easy shirt ever. 

You need two shirts - one striped and one a solid color 
1. Cut top off the solid and striped shirt just below the arms.
2. Take the top of the solid and sew to the bottom of the stripped. (my solid white shirt was an extra large so I had to cut the sleeves off to make smaller - you shouldn't need to do this)
3. the Pocket: cut out two complimentary color pocket shaped pieces. Sew together and turn right side out. Sew onto shirt. And your done! Super easy.

And there you have it!
