Mens Corduroy Shirt into Girls Dress

This dress started it's life as a men's corduroy, long sleeve shirt. For this dress I used the sleeves to create the body of the dress and the collar stand for the shoulder straps. The sleeves had some adjustement with buttons for the wrist size. This is still used for the dress - but now for altering the chest size (so it can be worn for more than 1 season).

For a bit of 'prettiness' I added a lovely doily to the front. I am hoping to hold a class in the near future with the theme of garment reconstruction for kids - this will definately be one of the examples.
