Dress Shirt to Toddler Dress

I have been taking a sewing class and have recently put some of what I learned to practice. I had seen this link a while ago about making a toddler dress from a men’s dress shirt. I decided not to raid hubby’s closet and instead went to the Goodwill and spent $3 on a shirt. Pretty good bargain after searching for other things to do with the shirt. From the one shirt I made Miss M a dress, a pair of pants, and a head scarf. I didn’t have bias tape and wanted to use what I had, so I just improvised on the scarf. Bias tape would have made it a 5 minute project, it turned into more of a twenty+ minute project using the fabric. The pants were super easy. The dress was a tad hard, but I think I could make another in less than 2 hours.

I am so pleased with the results and look forward to shopping for some more shirts. Sewing is pretty fun.
