Dress out of 2 shirts

Added Sep 13, 2010

I’ve always been interested in reconstructing existing ideas,so I came up with two forgotten shirts and one thing led to another………………….and voila DRESS came!There wasn’t any pattern involved,made it all on the doll, except the inner collar in different pattern which came from the existing neckline.Process wasn’t fast because it took a while to get things started (i mean to get me started after a long,long time),but in the end it wasn’t difficult at all!P.S It’s a little bit wrinkled, not a fan of ironing!

Material Notes

Pure cotton,different shirt samples




Spring, Summer, Fall
Garment Type
Bohemian, Casual

    the best upcycles are ones that don’t look like upcycles at all…this is very well done who would have guessed this was once 2 shirts – so nicely done!

    We’ve seen shirts reused, but this idea is one of the best! Cool!
