Do you gravitate towards amazing men’s dress shirts when you thrift? Or do you have a whole bunch of ill-fitting ones sitting in your favourite guy’s donate pile? Somehow I’ve ended up with a few more button-ups than I really need, so I decided to tackle another reconstruction to show you how versatile these babies are!
The collar and placket of a button-up are always a classic style and if you keep that portion of it in tact, you can keep a “put-together” look even if you’re wearing a totally deconstructed shirt. Today I’m going to show you how to make a large men’s shirt into a really cute summer dress with the back cut-out. So follow along and let me know if you have any questions!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
– an oversized mens button-up shirt
– a shirt that fits you well
– measuring tape
– sewing machine (not shown)
