got a bunch of old shirts, so I decided to make a dress out of one I really liked the print.
the shirt was way too big, so I used an other shirt to get the pattern that fits me.

I added a waistband and a skirt made of new fabric.






I thought that a normal seam would look quite boring so I added a smoke to it

That dress looks great!
I love the colours, the print (I can see why you wanted to keep that) and the seam.
It looks very well made.

Such great details! It all makes a really cute dress. The owl is awesome as well, especially with the purple.

just a normal cotton/polyester fabric with less lycra so it doesn't stretch Smiley
