I soooo loved the original version! I had to try it! Especially because my boyfriend has a TON of long sleeve button down shirts that he literally never wears! I applaud Selena on this no sew, recycle dress! It's definitely going to give me some great summer outfits!
It's so easy! I wore mine as a tube top style dress. As instructed in Selena's You Tube video, I just folded the collar down behind my back and buttoned it comfortably around my bust.
Don't forget to unbutton the collar buttons if the shirt you're using has them! Make sure the buttons are lined up as well (unless you're experimenting with different styles of wearing the shirt). When it's all buttoned down just fold over the top a bit to kinda align it with the collar.
Take the shoulders of the shirt under your arms and flatten them out so that the buttons on the side are centered and facing the floor. fold one side over your ribs, then the other. Pull it taught to accentuate your bust.
Just bring the twist of the sleeves and take one of the arms and tuck it over the other sleeve. Tighten the knot for comfort and sport your (kind of) new dress!
It feels kinda strange at first, but I tested it walking my dog around outside and everything stays in place! If you don't want to keep re-tightening the half-knot, you can put a brooch there to pin it in place or something.
