I love how you fitted this! So clever!
Since the buttons go up the back now, I just have to make sure someone is around to help me get in and out of the dress. 🙂
Another ingenius refashion 🙂 How I look forward to your new blog posts; keep ’em coming!
Thanks, Mother Deer!
I can’t seem to stop refashioning. There are just not enough hours in the day to refashion all I have planned.
It is great. I think the shirt choice makes a difference too – having the print around the bottom just makes it. http://www.madewithmytwohands.blogspot.com
you inspire me to re-work clothes I have but don’t like as they are!
Thank you, Alice!
I hope you try this. But just a word of warning: It’s habit forming!!! 🙂
Adorable! You are a creative genius. Seriously.
What a nice thing to say Heather. Thanks!
OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOh. The buttons. I was trying to figure out if you put a zipper in or what. 😉
I really should have mentioned that I just kept the buttons, but it now buttons down the back.
Your creativity is quite amazing Beth…I think you found your niche!
I want it!
If this is my sister, Jan, it would be too big for your little body.
I love this one!
Such a cute dress and there must be millions of shirts at thrift shops that could be converted to something as beautiful.
Excellent work 🙂
Thanks, Laura! For some reason, there are always men’s Hawaiian shirts at our thrift store. Go figure!!!??!!
That’s so pretty. Really like the way you added shape!
Thanks! It needed some length, so a waistband seemed the perfect solution.
You gave me an idea lady 🙂 Thank you so much!
Oh, I can’t wait to see it!!!!
I love that you put a middle piece in this one. Very cute!
Thank you! I added the middle piece to get some length. Can’t rock those short skirts anymore. Oh wait a minute… I never did. 😉
You are a magician…Poof, it’s a dress. I’m always amazed
Thanks, this one was so much trial and error, it did take a little longer than it looks.

Magic!! Another super remake 🙂
Thanks so much! It was fun to do.
WOW that’s fantastic!
Thank you, Joen!
Superb! What an inspired remake. I would never be able to tell it started out as a shirt. I am going to be on the lookout for big men’s shirts now.
I hope you try this. Send me pictures, I’d love to see your version!
You look adorable!!!
You’re so sweet, Alice! Thanks!
This is such a great idea. I never thought of using the sleeves that way. It works. Beautiful as usual.
It looks fabulous! Well done, you’ve done such a great job with it.
Thanks so much! That shirt was in my refash stash for quite awhile before it jumped out and told me it wanted to be a dress. 🙂
Thanks so much!
I love it! Not only does it fit well but it’s really flattering on you as well. You look lovely 🙂
Thank you, Camilla!
So cute! I am definitely going to try this one! Love!
Oh, I hope you do! I’d love to see it when you finish! I’ll post it on the “Your Projects” page with a link back to your site if you’d like.
That would be great! I will definitely send it your way. You are awesome. 🙂
I just finished making this dress…I had a mans shirt to make an apron from but after seeing your dress I had to try it…(just don’t know if i’m brave enough to wear it) I’m not as young as I think I am!! It was fun and quick and easy….thanks for all the inspiration!!
I’m so happy the dress worked out for you! I’d love to see it. You can send me a photo at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like.
I say wear the dress. You are as young as you feel!!!!!!
Wow! I’m SO impressed by the fabulous things you refashion here! I’ll be back for more inspiration. 🙂
Thank you so much, Sarah!

I just love following your new fashions! I am shopping the thrift stores all the time, now. I am currently trying to find a cashmere sweater large enough to make the peplum sweater. You are fantastic!
How cute is this dress!
Oh no…..I am heading off to a hawaiian party tomorrow, and have been searching for a tutorial like this all week, couldn’t find one, so ended up buying a dress today, and now I have found this, oh well, saved for next time.
Love your work, just brilliant!
Thanks so much, Karen. Maybe next time…
