Summer Fun: The Shirt Dress TUTORIAL

by Dana on April 8, 2009

Many of you have inquired about making a shirt dress – turning a Men’s dress shirt into a girl’s summer dress. So, I took the plunge and created a tutorial. It’s my first attempt at this and only hope it plays out well and makes sense.

We will be making this:
And you can find the tutorial HERE.
Skill Level for this dress is: EASY
Now get sewing, so you can start playing!

* If you use the tutorial to make a dress, I would love to see your creation. Leave a comment with a link!

I am not sure if the above link will work, but I have 4 pictures of a dress I made, using your dress tutorial. It’s the first time I’ve ever made sleeves, and I am very happy how it turned out. Thanks for the idea and good instructions! I also bought your pattern for shorts, and made those, too.
