My name is Katja and I am a re-fashionista :-)
I cleaned out my closet, and so did my husband, and I made a maxi-dress for zero money using nine old shirts…
I kept as many original details as possible, collar and buttons/buttonholes, hems, pockets… The dress has two slits at the side-front which can be unbuttoned as far up as I feel like :-), and I made a belt using the buttons and button holes from one of the blouses… Every single piece in this dress used to be part of a shirt. Well, except for the bias-tape I used to tidy up the insides.
