Here is my attempt.  I am planning to use white eyelet to finish the bottom and for the top.  Just need to go to Joann's.  Also, I've got dress #2 already started and number 3 and 4 shirts already deconstructed.  I need to find more kids to dress.  Smiley

I've been waiting for the summer to finally try this tutorial.  I'm hooked; I can't wait to make more dresses!  I made some changes to the bodice and straps.  The pattern is a tan and black plaid that didn't photograph well.

Hi!  I'm new here.. a friend sent me the link to your dress, and I instantly was in love!  I drove myself down to the salvation army and picked up a couple shirts.  I made mine for my 8 going on 9 year old.  The only problem I ran into was the shirt sleeves.  I ended up using the length of the shirt sleeve (I had bought long sleeve, as I couldnt get the short ones cheap, lol) and improvised.  It actually worked out pretty well! I didn't want to attempt the pleating, so I just sewed on some satin ribbon.

I'd love to have shot some pics of her (i'm a photographer) but it went from 94 yesterday to below 60 today!

I just finished this dress, but made a tunic for my daughter who's 8.  I love that it was so easy, I made it more complicated than it actually was!  Thanks for sharing!  I see my husband missing a few more shirts in the near future! LOL
