I wish I'd taken a real before shot of this shirt, it was pretty ugly.  A 3x mens wrangler shirt with sleeves that were a good 10 inches too short for all of the big guys who tried it on.  

So, snip snip, sew sew, then I dyed it black, and freehanded that horse on the front.  (The dress is only the black- the saggy blue-ish is a covering on my ratty dress form)

I do have an 'in progress' pic- you do get a hint of stripe in the finished dress.  I like it!

You must not for one instant give up the effort to build new lives for yourselves. Creativity means to push open the heavy, groaning doorway to life. This is not an easy struggle. Indeed, it may be the most difficult task in the world, for opening

I would, but I'm not entirely sure how I made it... I was just winging it the whole time.  The waist is the back yoke of the shirt-front and the cuffs-back, and the front and collar is... the front, with some tucks and darts and such. The skirt i just hacked out of the rest of the fabric.

Worst tute ever.   Grin

If you could just walk through the making of the top, that would be fantastic.  The skirt looks like something you just sorta do as you can.  I love it, though.  Very very cute.

That is GREAT!!!!! Great job!

for those looking for a tutorial.. its not EXACTLY but its very similar, go out and buy the new edition of craftstylish. It has articles about refashioning in this one. They have a ments button up shirt dress that resembles this one and an awesome lumberjack(flannel) button up redo.

Ive been thinking and thinking on how to make one of these( i am plus sized) but your pictures give me more ideas( as the one in the magazine  does as well but doesnt have as many pics as you)

Again, well done!
