fochaux asked:
this is really phenominal! DH is retiring out of the military. I am hoping to try something similar for our three little girls out of his dress blues shirts when he does. Thank-you for the inspiration and sharing the details of your project!
dottyeb answered:
The blue dress shirts would make lovely little dresses. Plus if you have many of the same color it will make it easier to design the drsses since you won't be limited to one shirt for fabric for the dresses. I think of ruffles, pleated trim, etc. with the extra fabric. Good luck.
