Finished Bandeau from Button Down

Originally uploaded by btgkowalski

I made this dress from a women’s size large button down shirt. I am very pleased with the way it turned out. I still need to make a decision on the string that ties around the neck but I am debating between making it out of the left over material or if I should use a white braided cord to add a little different element. Who knows? I should probably decide soon…

    I came over here from wardrobe refashion … I love this idea! I have several old shirts of my hubby’s that I was wanting to make into summer dresses – this gives me another idea! Very cute.

      Thanks it was pretty simple, I can’t explain every detail because I dont really remember what I did but I did take the sleeves and make the bandeau top part. If there’s anything I can help with along the way let me know!
