One shirt in particular has been sitting on my own discard pile up until this new sewing venture.
I liked the color of the shirt but found that by itself it was quite boring.
I then found this awesome curtain panel at Salvation Army. Beautiful ribbon detail and perfect match to the rose in the shirt.
I realized that the shirt arms were to short for my 4 year old so I cut them off and hemmed the sleeves to make it a tank style shirt. Cut off the top of the valance, did a running stitch, pulled it, then attached to the shirt and there you have it, a pretty new dress!
