"SEW SENTIMENTAL" Peasant Dress Made from Dad's Shirt PDF Pattern Size 6 mos - 6 child With all the upcycling, repurposing and reusing articles, I decide to give my spin on the idea. I have seen many dresses or garments made from a man's dress shirt. Honestly, most still look like a man's shirt. I decided to try to create the best looking one possible that really looks like it belongs on the child. To create this effect you have to be willing to go the extra mile to add all the details that transform the shirt into a darling dress. I have added red buttons and red rick rack to accent the blue and white of this shirt. It adds that special bling to a plain shirt transforming it into a boutique look. You can use your own imagination to create your OOAK dress made from Dad's shirt. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY sew a basic seam and be able to cut and measure. Shirring is used but also explained
