New Orleans, Lou...
I made this from a men’s shirt I got from the Goodwill. I used a tutorial with a few variations. It’s hard enough to make plus size clothing without it looking like a sack. :)
Ok… after much demand, I dug up the link… (this is the third one I’ve made, so I don’t reference it any more…) link = http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/change-a-mens-shirt-into-a-dress
The main change I made was that I took measurements on myself. I used my bustline plus an inch for the top measurement and my hips plus two inches for the bottom. I have been considering taking in the sides a little, but meh. :)
