    I like how well the ruffle detail goes with a geometric pattern. If you combine two shirts in contrasting colors, I bet you can make an evening dress under two hours :)

    Being a Husband I have mixed feeling about this. I have shirt I have made for myself that hurt my soul if they were refashioned. by my wife…. But with that said very nice job
