Description

I made this dress from a shirt that was left behind in my closet. It was a great pleasure to cut it up and make it into something useful! I had leftover fabric when the dress was finished, so I made a bag as well. I still have the collar, the pockets, and the button placket. Hmmm…..

      I do have a pattern, but it is not ready for some one besides me to try to make sense of yet. I will get it ready (soon, I hope!) and put it in my Etsy shop.
      Once it is ready, I think it will be very simple to sew!
