Game Day Dresses From T-Shirts

Is there a team that you root for? I’m a proud University of of Washington Husky, and I’d love to have a dress to show my loyalty. These game day dresses are darling, and you can make one in a halter or tube top style. It’s all about adding jersey knit to the bottom. Learn more below!

Cute Sundress From a Man’s Shirt

refashion a shirt into a sundress

I must admit, every time I go to the Goodwill it looks as though a truck of men’s shirts just arrived – when in fact, there are just that many there ALL the time. Don’t be afraid to pick one up and turn it into a dress! It’s not as hard as it looks. The dress that Carly made looks challenging, but if you read through the instructions and follow them to a tee, you’ll be good to go. Does anyone else love the ruffle on the front of her dress as much as I do?

How to Downsize a Striped Dress

I’ve seen these sort of baggy dresses at the thrift store but never thought that they could so easily be altered! I thought you’d need to do something special, but you really just mark, trim, cut and sew. You won’t believe how easy it really is (and you can do it with a regular sewing machine!). Check out another Cotton & Curls watch refashion that we featured here.

Amazing Prom Dress Upcycle

This is one of my favorite refashions ever – not just because it’s cool, but because it was done by a teenager! It’s so fun that she bought her own dress from the vintage shop and then altered it to be the beautiful prom dress you see on the right. She makes it sounds easy – visit the blog to read about how it was done.

What do you do when you have a man’s shirt but are in need of a toddler dress? Of course you refashion it! I love the little accents with the patch, the yellow buttons and the tie in the back. It’s even more darling seeing the toddler wearing it, so visit the post below to see more pictures.

Turn a Pleated Skirt into a Gorgeous Dress

Sarah at Welcome to the Good Life was rummaging around in her mother’s closet and found a pleated skirt. And the genius part is Sarah turned it into an amazing dress based on a $740 one dress she loved from — Burberry!!

AND, she won a design contest at Shabby Apple for this idea. Congratulations Sarah!!

Old Wedding Dress to Maxi Skirt

I have seen quite a few old, lace dresses at the thrift store, but I have no idea what to do with them. I think the vintage lace is so pretty, but wearing it as a dress seems silly. So this is a great idea – turn it into a maxi skirt! They are popular right now, so why not? Visit the link below for the tutorial.

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.
