Got some shirts that you cant wear due to stains, rips etc? Don't throw them out! Refashion! This is the best way to practice your sewing skills, if you mess up, no big deal, you were going to get rid of the shirts anyway!
I took three shirts, now depending on your size and what fit you want, you may want to go bigger or smaller in size. I'm a curvy size 6 bottom and medium top in women’s sizes (large in juniors).
What I used...
1 Fitted top with sleeves (grey, for sleeves and detail)
1 Large men’s shirt (black, for the top)
1 Medium men’s shirt (maroon, for the skirt)
Make sure you have shirts inside out before you start cutting and sewing!
Place bottom of dress below the top of the dress to help get an idea of how you want the bottom to look. If you have a friend around, have them help you pin the bottom of the dress together. I pinned the top part of the bottom of the dress and put it on and pinned away. If you are going for the looser look, pin the pieces together at diagonals, think A-Line. Sew and cut off excess fabric. I Also trimmed off the bottom since the shirt length was still not equal.
