Well, here it is, Day Five of Dress For Change Week. So far not one of my students noticed that I was wearing the same skirt all week. Hmmmm…… makes one think.
Today, I’m wearing another quick and easy refashioned man’s shirt with my black skirt.
I started with this shirt.
I cut off the sleeves very close to the stitching so I don’t have to hem and used them to cut out two flounce ruffles using my previous pattern.
After you cut them out, make one cut through each one to open it up. I then attached them to either side of the button placket like I did on this shirt, but instead of putting the gathered edge along the placket, place the short edge (the inside edge) along the placket.
The flounce ruffle is a completely different look from a gathered ruffle. I love how soft and feminine the shirt is now.
Here’s a recap of my outfits for Dress for Change Week:
After Tondra Denise read about Sheyanne’s project, it struck a nerve with her and she immediately signed up with her eight year old daughter to participate.
Check out her blog, Ordinary Moments…Extraordinary Memories, to see what inspired her and what she wore each day each day.
Thank you Tondra for participating.
