Description

I’ve been itching to do a men’s shirt remake ever since I saw some tuorials online about how refashion a men’s button down. When I was at the store, however, this men’s shirt caught my eye. I liked the print, especially because it’s hard to get large designs like this on fabric. Best thing was that it was onl $6.99.

I let it sit a little while as I figured out what to do with it. I contemplated making a plain dress, as that would be the simplest thing to do, but I never seem to take the easy way out. Finally I was looking for some fabric to make this McCall’s pattern when I stumbled upon this shirt again. It was a bit of a risk because I didn’t know if I’d have enough fabric, but I the final resutl is super comfy and a little bit stylish.

You can check out the before and after pics here at MadeByMeg.
