InstructionsThis is an original creation, but I did use the basic lines and pieces of the bodice of McCall's 6019 to get the correct lines and sizing for the bodice.
Type of item: Clothing
Style: Cute, Retro / Vintage, Casual
Repurposed man's dress shirt, left over lace
What was your inspiration?
I like to repurpose clothing items from thrift stores to make children's clothes. There is a lot of fabric in men's shirts, and consequently they make cute little dresses for girls. This dress is a size 6 and utilizes most of the fabric in the shirt, as you can see from the photo of the 'leftovers'.
What are you most proud of?
That I was able to create yet another different dress from a thrift store $.25 cent find.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just think out of the box, and be creative. There are no 'rules', just results!!!
