San Antonio, Tex...
finally accomplished making a 2XL Men’s shirt to a dress!
no pattern or drafting used, I just went with what felt and fit right.
I re-used the collar as flaps for the bodice.
the skirt is beautifully gathered, very proud of myself.
NO ZIPPER REQUIRED! the buttons are totally re-useable
I love the fit and how well it came out.
The belt really ties it together though.
making a hair bow from straps later.
thrifted XXL men’s shirt
Plan a weekend getaway in these sweater dresses and furry accessories.
