I made my refashioned shirt dress 4.5 years ago, and I even wore when my husband proposed to me!
I’ve always wanted to make a tutorial out of it, but I’m in a stage of life where my size and weight are constantly changing so I decided to make a simpler tutorial elastic waist version!
It is super comfy and “chasing kids” worthy. It can grow with pregnancy, or it shrink with post-partum. I love that it has nursing access, it has pockets, and it’s cute and fun!
– men’s button up shirts – elastic, measure to fit your waist – sewing tools – sewing machine
Take the shirt that’ll become the bodice and cut it at your waist with 1″ seam allowance.
Line up the shirt with the skirt at the waist. Draw new side seams for the skirt and shirt. Sew up the new side seams separately, trim, and finish the edges.
