Anytime a garment can be reused and remade into something else is saving a garment from being tossed into the trash. Normally we see skirts, dresses, shirts and blouses remade into children’s clothing; however this tutorial is using a man’s oversized shirt and making it into a woman’s dress – well perhaps a teenager’s dress. The “make a dress from a button-down shirt” by emattrose for the Instructables.com website is fantastic!
In the tutorial she tells how to choose a shirt, then proceeds with the tutorial on how to make the dress. AWESOME tutorial, emattrose!!
Now that you’re all set to do some reusing and remaking some garments into new items, you might want to check out “Make A Child’s Wardrobe From Your Old Clothes”, which will give you tons of ideas!
Here you go – dress for a teenager, and clothes for children! Let’s reuse and repurpose those garments, and save some money at the same time!
