Women's Dresses from Men's Polos

I love making dresses out of men's polos, mostly because they're sooo comfortable.  If I'm on vacation doing touristy things for the whole day, that is what I wear- I can look nice, get some air circulating in the skirt, and not have anything restrictive on.  I've taken a few that I've made down to a consignment shop down the street and they've sold.  Here are two recent ones:

The one above has a halter neck, and the one below has trim on the sleeve openings made from the green striped shirt.  It also has a belt made from the striped shirt.
Thanks for looking!

Both great projects, I particularly like how your first dress has that great Hawaiian floral pattern

Thanks for sharing

Wow....what an improvement. The thrift store is full of unloved polo's. I am going to give this refashion a try.
