DIY with Gail Carriger ~ Making a Blue Shirt from a Blue Dress

So I bought this dress for about $5 from the Bon Marche thrift store in Sonoma. I never wore it, there was just something slightly too 80's about it. But I still loved the color and brocade fabric, so I decided to try to make it into a shirt.

And with some cutting and snipping and a little hemming, voila.


I added small vintage buttons to sleeve and front waist.

Here's some good articles on DIY from thrift store items. And a similar project on New Dress a Day. I haven't worn this shirt yet, I'll let you know when I do.
