Men's Shirt Refashion

They are all over Pinterest.  Men's Shirt Refashions.  I have a lovely stash off men's dress shirts that I buy for my hubby but he refuses to wear : (

After seeing a girls dress on MADE sewn by Dana I decided to give it a try.  Excuse the wrinkles as Soren wore it to school today!

The shirt was from Boden : (
My husband didn't like it.
Soren loves it : )
Soren wears a size 8
The shirt was a size 17 neck  34/35 sleeve

I used one of my Japanese sewing patterns for a peasant style top.  I used the existing hem of the shirt.  I cut out the dress in a very exaggerated A-line shape using the entire width of the shirt towards the hem.  I think it turned out great.  It is really very flattering on her and I will be making more dresses in this style from yardage and shirts alike.



  1. Will you make me one...That is really cool. I wear a 36.

  2. Looks superb! Nice details, I think it looks really professional. This weekend I was toying with the idea of making a men's shirt, but I think it is still to early for me to pull it. Good job!
