I just loved how Cheytown turned a mans shirt into a girls dress. I have been thinking of making one ever since I saw her post.

I had my brother drop of some shirts he didnt use anymore. Now, one of them has a new life as a dress for his daugther. She will be 2 on sunday, and this is her birthday gift fra the crafty aunt Smiley
Mine is a different model than Cheytowns, but the general idea is the same.

Front:


Back:

I cannot hem to save my life, but I think it turned out ok. I guess the little one wont mind the imperfections.

Thanks for looking.

I JUST made a shirt similar to this one for my wee one, but sleeve less because for the life of me I cant figure out sleeves! Sad

oh, great recon!  I like the inital on the front, and the style with the print is just great.  My husband gets all dorky and sentimental whenever he sees his little girl in one of his old shirts (though he has asked her a few times to give back his danzig shirt  Roll Eyes).  I'm sure the little one and her dad are going to love it.

Do you have a link to the original or a tutorial?  I've seen the shirt made into a tank dress, but never one like this.  I have a couple of my husbands shirts saved to make dresses for my little one... some day...
