My cousin and I went to our local second hand shop and bought some old flannel shirts to make them into dresses. with my dressform, it was pretty easy to decide, where the darts should go and how to alter the armholes

Material Notes

1 Button up Shirt, it should be XXL or larger! (the length is important)




Garment Type
Casual, Geek, Other, Rock
Flannel, Shirting

    Nice, I like how you reused old shirts to make something really of-the-moment. Pretty cool :).
