I love your dresses!  It feels good when you can repurpose clothing into something you love.

Wow - great use of an XXXL.  Did all that fabric really come from one shirt?

Yes, all the fabric came from one shirt for each dress, except for a lining I needed for the bust of first dress (too see-through). The bust portions are from the short shirt sleeves.  On the plaid one, the straps are from the yoke of the shirt.  On the green one, the waist section is from the yoke, and the straps are from part of the collar, with the front bodice decoration from the rest of the collar.

I'm most happy with the plaid one.  The green one draped better on my dummy, but not so well on me.
