Shirt to dress

Added Apr 26, 2009

London, United K...






A dress I made from a man’s shirt using one of the how-tos on this very website!
I added pink bias binding round the edges of the straps.

It’s pretty big and baggy, but is so light and cool to wear when it’s hot. Can be saved a bit with a belt.

Material Notes

A man’s shirt (XL) from a charity shop. 100% cotton.

    Thank you very much!

    How do you link creations and how-to’s? I can’t seem to work it out!

    Which how-to did you use? You should link it to your creation:)

    Looks great!
