I went to Goodwill in search of some fun men's shirts to make into dresses for Peighton.
I had seen this tutorial on the Made blog and thought what a great idea and so inexpensive, not to mention a great way to recycle!
I picked up this purple one and a really cute orange and white striped one that I thought would turn into some fabulous dresses!
I started with a pattern that I already had and liked. Probably could have done it with just a shirt of Peighton's though too.
Oops. This one is upside down! But you can see all my pieces. I cut the turquoise knit off another shirt to use as a waistband and give it a little pop of color.
When I got to this point I thought how cute the bottom part would be as a skirt! Next time.
It turned out so cute! I have since added a little flower rosette to the middle with a little button in the center. I thought it needed a little something.
What a fun summer dress this turned out to be!
I loosely used the directions on MADE for this one although I did the waistband with knit on mine. I think on my next "Shirt to Dress" project I am going to try doing the waistband on top of the dress as she did in her tutorial!
I also picked up about 10 other shirts while shopping at the Goodwill-I can't wait to start cutting them apart too!
