Repurposed Men's Shirt Dress


I love a good mens shirt up cycle...so when my husband decided he didn't want this anymore I was quick to make something from it. I wanted something that was unique but also keep the classic look of the tailored shirt. After some thought I designed this mini dress with the sleeves as the waist tie to cinch it all together. This way you don't have to do some major alterations because it creates a waistline for you. I did have to hem the sleeves over a bit, but overall it's quite easy and very cute. I want a crisp white one next…

 Remove sleeves. I cut right along the seam incase I didn't want to hem the armholes. I ended up having too anyways.
 Gather the arm at the end shoulder.  I placed mine so my inside seam was up right then I just folded pleats into it and top stitched along the pins.
 Top stitch pleats into place and trim any excess…I'm not trimming mine because I may do another design using this shirt for later.  On the side seam of the shirt find where you want you waist and cut a slit along the seam wide enough to fit the sleeve into.
 Slide into the slit and top stitch along the existing seam making sure to get front and back…
Hem the arm holes if necessary. I had to take them in a bit.
Love my new dress.

  14. A company’s logo is among the first thing a prospect sees and the way they visualize is how they will accept the product or service your business provides. This is why it has become increasingly important to have a quality logo design on the right social media platform or web so it works wonders in drawing the success you are aiming for.
