    I think it looks TERRIFIC!!! now all I need is a husband who’s bigger than me…..haha! In my city in China, I’m too tall and too long limbed to buy clothes off the rack BUT now I can have fun with super large shirts at least. Sewing is bliss – but sometimes shopping is fun too.

    This reminded me of my sons rented shirts for proms, weddings and such. I always basted in several darts all around to make the shirt look better under the vest. His friends were always envious of his “custom fitted” shirts.

    Great adjustments! Congrats on a job well done!!

    Nice indeed! The pattern in the fabric looks better now that it’s on a dress than a shirt! Thanks for your tutorial, and keep upcycling!
