A Denim Dress From a Men's Shirt

Hello Refashioners. (Is that a word?) How are all of you? I found this 3X shirt at a clothes swap recently. I thought it would be long enough on me to make a little dress. 

I used another dress as a guide, sewed it up and cut off the extra fabric. I shortened the sleeves drastically. This was a lot faster and easier than I thought it would be.

Last, I covered the logo above the pocket with the wide end of a men's tie. My husband got ink on it and couldn't wear it anymore. (Thanks Honey!)

For more pictures and details go to, I Can Work With That.

Thanks for reading, now go make something fun for yourself.
