There comes a time when, like people, all good work shirts must be retired. For some of us we want that retirement at age 35, ha! Don’t necessarily through those retired work shirts into the giveaway pile, because you can make them into dresses, just like Stef did. The shirring and the bows make it, don’t you think? Visit Stef for the tutorial.

Little Girls’ Shirt Dress

Girls' dress refashion

I tried shirring (sewing with elastic thread) one time on my little Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine, and it was a bust. The poor little machine just couldn’t handle it! But I could tell that if it had worked, it would have been cool. And this little dress made from a man’s shirt solidifies that. It’s so darling, and perfect for summer, which is close around the corner. The tutorial is easy to follow, and if you’ve never tried shirring, it’s easier than it looks (just use the right machine!).
