My Shirt Anda!

Added Jul 26, 2008

by staticstasy

Athens, Greece






So. I thought I would make my entry for the Anda Minichallenge out of a shirt after seeing all of the shirtdresses everyone made from my how-to! There’s a how-to for this one as well. I cut out the pieces of the Anda pattern from a shirt and then I just sort of went from there… Cut out the back, gathered it, covered the edges with contrasting fabric, made a belt and added a ruffle to the bottom! It’s great for going to the beach and for wearing in the heat down here in Greece!

Hope you like it!

    The dress is stunning.

    You also have a very beautiful back and figure. :) Cuteness.

    I love this, this is really fantastic. I like the lose ruffly neck with the wide shoulders. Very spunky!

    I like how it still keeps its used-to-be-a-shirt look while it is a beautiful casual dress at the same time!

    The back looks so elegant! I especially love the binding around the sleeves and neck—the perfect touch.

    Thanks a lot for your nice comments! Yeah it’s a strip exactly for that and to hold the two sides from sliding down!

    love it! is that a sewn in strip in the back or bra? a strip is a good idea there to cover up a bra… and i love the belt!
