So. I thought I would make my entry for the Anda Minichallenge out of a shirt after seeing all of the shirtdresses everyone made from my how-to! There’s a how-to for this one as well. I cut out the pieces of the Anda pattern from a shirt and then I just sort of went from there… Cut out the back, gathered it, covered the edges with contrasting fabric, made a belt and added a ruffle to the bottom! It’s great for going to the beach and for wearing in the heat down here in Greece!
Hope you like it!
