Craft: Men's Shirts to Little Girl Dresses!

**Just a reminder to check out the BLOG CANDY a few posts below, the entering deadline is Sunday at 5pm CDT for some scrap booking tools! **


My friend Amanda posted these cute dresses she made and I was floored to see that they were made from Men's shirts! What a clever way to not have to sew buttons! I have sent her a message to see if she has a pattern but I thought I would go ahead and post them so you could see them and maybe figure out how to do these on your own.

You take a normal men's button up shirt.....


and turn it into a cute girls dress.....

the front buttons on the men's shirt becomes the back of the girls dress....




Again, men's shirt....turns into...



A cute dress!!!


and you don't have to sew any buttons!


I love this idea....and I would probably run home and do one if I had a little girl! I guess I should do some for my nieces!
What a cute idea! I searched around the Internet and found the tutorial for this here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=170402.0, it looks pretty straight forward. I think this would be a fun thing to do for a women's night at church....or even for a service project.
Happy Sewing!
