Little Miss Fashionista
While perusing Pinterest, I see alot of clothing refashions. You know the types- turn a big T-shirt into a cuter, more fitted T. Make a shrug out of another shirt. Modify pants into capris, etc, etc, etc.
Anywho, I ran across this turn-a-men's-dress-shirt-into-a-girl's-dress by Dana of DanaMadeIt (Love that site!). I never really thought much of it until we were moving back in February and Hubby was purging his closet. He had an old dress shirt that had a hole in the arm, but was otherwise in good shape. The tear wasn't at a seam, so mending it would result in a pretty obvious seam.
So, I decided to use the shirt dress by DanaMadeIt as inspiration to attempt my very own (and first!) refashion for Lil' Miss. I didn't really use a pattern, I just kind of started cutting and sewing to come up with my own creation.
What do you think? I think it turned out pretty cute (if I do say so myself!)! The cap sleeves just about killed me (I've never done sleeves, before) and don't even bother to look at the inside, but I am happy with the end results! I added the red ribbon from my stash for a pop of color, but I think I'll probably go shopping for a slightly thinner, less shiny red ribbon, later.
Hmm.... I wonder if Hubby needs to get "rid" of any more dress shirts.....;-P
