Shirt Dress Shirt

Remember I said that I had another dress shirt in a pretty mint green? It was a boy's XL so it ended up being too short for a dress, but perfect for a summery shirt! I think it is a smidgen short (when K raises her arms we get a big helping of tummy) so I'll have to make the next one a couple of inches longer. Oh yes, there will be a next one - I am addicted! The best part is - K actually wore it today. Yippee.

What do you think?


Brenda shared this tutorial with me the other day. K may have to get ones of these too!

Very cute! I sew very little, my crafting is all yarn based but I passed both tutorials along to my mother in law, they're both right up her alley!
