DIY: Shirtdress

    |

I'm back with another DIY and this week I made a shirt dress from 2 men's button up shirts. By using two shirts I was able to make the dress color blocked. It's best to use shirts that are much larger than you. I used a large for the top half and an extra large for the bottom half. I ended up not having enough for the dress to wrap completely around me, so I used leftover scraps and created side panels. Next time I will use a 2xl button up.






I'm not really big on dresses but I like this style and it was cool to make. Are you big on dresses?

  10. I'm not big on dresses either, but I like this! I really like all the colorblocking you've been doing lately. The panels on this are really cool (even if they were originally just for function!)

  14. You did a great job Mo! I was wondering about the sides (wtg side panels). Your booties are so sassy. Love the buckle on them! Great look from head to toe girl!
