I love plaid and I wanted to make a new dress so I went and bought some fabric but I thought it might be easier to make a dress out of an old shirt. So I was going to run to Goodwill to buy some old shirts but a friend said she already had some that she could give me. So, here's what I did.
I put on the shirt to see how it fit.
And it was pretty big, especially in the arms.
So, I cut off the arms.
And repinned them into place. Then I sewed them back on.
And I took a piece of green elastic and used the extra fabric to sew a little strip for the back to pull the dress tighter.
Then I sewed the elastic on the back. And wah-lah, the dress was finished.
And I tried it with a belt too and some leggings. Super simple new dress.
