Not the best pictures in the world, but done via the mirror the best I could do. It does actually look more reasonable in real life. THe armholes were not quiet right, and if I was to do the same again, I would make a self facing rather then using bias binding. Or make my own binding out of the same or contrasting fabric. But for a few hours of fun, and an old shirt. Not so bad.

surfing around for inspiration
last night I was surfing around for some inspiration, and waiting for DGD to go to sleep, when i came across a tutorial for making a dress out of a mans shirt. Alas I cannot seem to find who it was I got it from. Anyway, feeling inspired I grabbed one of my BF's boring short sleeved shirt that he was intending to throw out, and with a piece of plain woven fabric, that I have had lurking for ever and a day, I came up with my version of her dress.
