Shirt to Dress Restyle

14.9.12


I have been waiting to share this project with you for some time now.  I am super proud of it because I am just a beginner in sewing.  And this dress turned out just great.

 It is currently my favorite dress and if I could, I would wear it everyday.


 I bought this vintage shirt.  It is 4 sizes too big for me but I could see that it could become a fantastic dress.  So, I took it to my friends at Action House and asked the Naehkoenigin for help.  They gave me some tips about how to execute it.  They were a wonderful resource.

Like I said, a few months ago I love shirt-dresses and I am so excited to have one in this lovely floral pattern.

 I took the sleeves off, took the sides in and added the sleeves to the bottom for some extra length.









Have you been sewing anything these days? I am really loving getting back into it!

Thanks for reading lovelies,

Anna

I have also shortened a few pieces for the shop which turned out fantastically!  Hurray for sewing.
