I've been checking out the men's dress shirt remakes over at MADE and thought I'd give the idea a try. As I haven't created a piece of clothing in quite a while, I was pretty intimidated by the project...but really excited about the result. Maya liked the dress and even wore it the whole day (which is huge for her because it seems that EVERYTHING makes her uncomfortable). When it comes to clothes and Maya, all items must fit in an exact fashion or the neighbors will be calling the coppers due to all the screaming that projects from her tiny body. Seriously, the girl is fanatical about what type of socks she wears. Back to the dress. I bought an X-large men's linen shirt at the thrift store, added some elastic, some of my own fabric for the waistband/pocket/headband and produced this sweet little number.
I'm in love with the idea of creating something new from used clothing or material and can't wait to find my next refashioning project.
Next time, I'll get the before picture too.
