This vintage dress has been sitting in my refashion pile for a while and I finally decided to make some changes to it. When I purchased it, I was instantly attracted to the vibrant colors and print. But the dress's shape was all wrong..too large, too boxy, the length was odd, and I simply didn't like it as it. I thought it would look much better as a modernized shirt. So I quickly created a refashioned vintage dress to shirt.
I measured and cut 3 inches from both sides of the chest area and 2 inches from the hips. This prevented the shirt from fitting too snug around the hips and butt area. Can you say 'curvy girl issues'? I also cut 1 3/4 inches from the sleeves to make them slimmer. To get the angle in the front and back, I folded the shirt in half and drew a semi-circle, cut, and hemmed.
Voila! It was a very easy refashion. More details and pictures can be found on my blog, ChiChiLoves
