I bought this shirt dress in a charity shop, but it was several sizes too big and pretty frumpy. I ripped out all the seams, but left the collar and button band intact. I then reshaped the bodice to my figure and stitched the pleated skirt back on. I then took about 10cm off the bottom, and used some of this fabric to make triangular gussets to fill in the bottom of the armholes (where I had pulled down some of the fabric to make a horizontal bust dart). I then took in the sleeves by about 4cm and reshaped the sleeve to fit the new armhole. The tops of the sleeves are slightly gathered for a 1940s sort of look
