Faith Family Fashion Fun

Shirt dress 001

Here I am again with another refashion. This time my sister in Christ who is doing great losing weight. She has now taken the big sizes out of the closet. Well I told her I would love them to refashion, give to my sister, or send to Cuba. When I was looking through the bag I found this ** can you picture the stars in my eyes!!! I have been to two women of faith events and love them.
So as you can see I had itstarted in my head and went to cutting before you could take a picture of it whole. But, you get the picture. I cut off the sleeves and then cut the  collar strait across. Next i needed to get more length to form into a T shirt dress. So I opened the sleeves up put the wide part that was a raw edge right sides together with where the collar was cut from.

Now to figure out a collar ok so I put the one I cut off back on and cut out the neck opening.

Had to use my dress form to get it to fit my curves and this is how it came out…

So what do you think? I am going to trim the neck and sleeves at first I did not think I would need to I liked it as a gardening yard house dress. But I love it and want to where it everywhere. So I will continue to build this dress as I wear it and add to it daily!!!

  1. way, WAY cute! I’m looking desperately for help in altering my friend’s nursing smock. She’s lost a lot of weight and is convinced I can do anything with a needle and thread. I’d rather make it fit her than prove her wrong. 😆 Truth is, I’ve never actually done clothing alterations, other than turning them into purses . . . any ideas??

    • Thank you so much for reading. I think those would be easy. But… nothing is ever easy that is worth it. If you have one that fits her or if you have her handy measurements work best. But, take the one that fits lay it over and use it as a template. A pattern. Put the too big on her pin and mark with pencil then sew It shouldn’t be too hard.

      • Ah! Well, that makes sense. I’ll need to take it back over to her house (she sent it home with me) and either pin it while she’s wearing it, or have her give me one that fits. This one has darts, and pockets sewn into the side seams, which will have to be moved. It will be a challenge!! Thanks so much for this.
