Repurposing is ALL the rage right now. I'm all for it, too....except that I'm not super great at making clothes. But then my aunt sent me THIS link for repurposing a men's shirt and making a shirt for yourself. I decided I would try it out.
Welllll.... the thought was good in theory. In practice, not so much. I started out making a shirt for me. And then I cut too much off. So then I decided to make it a dress for my 1-year-old daughter. But I used a stretchy fabric dress to use as the pattern so when I tried to get it on her it would stretch across her belly! Frustrating! It would totally fit a smaller baby girl. I guess I'll keep it in case I ever have another girl...
At least it looks super cute!
I think my favorite part is the collar. I love how it ties in the front!
I'm going to try again with a different shirt so fingers crossed that I can get it right this time!!
