Husby's shirt + Granny's sarong to my new dress

Do you know sa-rong? It is a tube of fabric usually wearing in South Asia, including Thailand. It's one part of our traditional costume.
I got this sa-rong from mother in law's fabric stach. The elderly trend to wear them in normal life while the young generation mostly wear them on special occasion and some festival.

  So, together with my husby's working shirt that he passed it to my fabric pile. I've created something that I would more often wear on daily basic, the shirt dress.

On process
It's turn out well. I can still wearing it during my first and second period of my pregnancy. I think the sa-rong and shirt would happy to have their second life together and be worn under the sun again.

Happy ReFashion!

I love the use of the shirt to create a yoke. The new dress looks so pretty.

I love the way you used the shirt to make the neck line. What a great idea!

How cute! Love the way the combination makes it look like a pinafore, but much prettier with the sarong design.
