Men's shirt to Girl's Dress

shirt to dress


I found this great tutorial from Made on how to make a man's shirt into a girl's dress. I scrounged through some goodwill bags and found one of my brother's old shirts and made this dress for my niece. I kind of just winged it since I couldn't get the pattern to enlarge on my computer, and I didn't know my niece's exact measurements. So when my sister sent me this picture of her wearing it I was so relieved that it fit! The best part was that the hem and buttons are already done from the shirt and I removed the pocket from the shirt and sewed it back on the dress, so you could whip this up in an afternoon. Total cost of dress: $0.00!

  7. It's so cute..... :) You have fully changed the pattern & the look of the mens shirt. I like the idea of making something new from the mens dress shirts. I also will try once & see what can be a new creation from my side.
