Man's shirt dress

My first-ever sewing project! I used the man’s shirt how-to and it turned out pretty cute, I think. Instead of gathering at the front I made a pleat in the back.

Material Notes

XL man’s shirt from thrift shop

    When my girls were small, we made “Daddy Shirt Skirts”. Thank you for the lovely memory! Very Cute.

    I’m going to have to try this. Your dress looks cool. Your first sewing project came out awesome.
