I’ve been wanting to experiment with making a men’s shirt into a dress for a long time now and today I finally got around to it! So I took my experimental Men’s Button up shirt, and started cutting away. And as smart as I am I cut the pattern pieces without measuring them, and apparently my fantasy pattern didn’t fit over one leg in my real body. Whoops. That’s where the side panels come in, I needed the stretch of a t-shirt. So after another round of estimated cutting I applied the side panels and finished it up.
While it does fit me better now, let’s just say it looked a little less skanky on my tween niece =) I still have to finish some of the edges and the back of it because it’s not suppose to tie, but she was leaving soon and I wanted to get some pictures of it before I lost my window of opportunity. So here it is on my beautiful niece, while she had a bit of fun modeling for me. (And my other baby niece who wanted to get all up in the mix =)
