Hello all! I was dawdling through some street fashion sites (not something I normally do, but hey) when I saw this girl's dress...

The first picture, Oisin. It's not actually a recon, but it would be so easy to recreate! And one style that I don't think I've seen so far.

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.

Wow, I personally would be a bit iffy wearing that just like that in public, because at first glance it just looks like a man's dress shirt and nothing else!  Super easy to make though, just elastic below the bust and at the ends of the (hemmed) sleeves.  It would be cute with some other stuff added to make it look a bit less bedroom--maybe a sash, some trim on the bottom, a cute underskirt peeping out.  It's a very interesting idea though...I may go borrow one of my husband's shirts now to experiment...hahaha

Mmm, I know. Not really my style, but I've seen a lot of cute recons done by others using men's shirts, so I just thought I'd share another idea!

You could make it less "bedroom" just by using a darker shirt - there are so many nice ones available now in chocolates and greys.

Thanks for sharing! Hubby just cleaned out his closet and he's a 3xl and I'm a womens medium/small. I've been looking for something like this to do with his button down shirts!
So cute and girly and like mentioned with a little modification can be adorable!
Thanks !
