Button Up Shirt To Dress Tutorial

"With this shirt to dress refashion you can turn a women’s or men’s button up shirt into a fun and easy dress. This refashion is simple and doesn’t require any fitting! This past Fall I was looking for items to refashion and upcycle at the thrift store, and I came across this striped button up shirt. I loved it and wanted to wear it as is. After buying it and trying it on, I realized that it was too short for my tall, tall torso. I was going to get rid of it, but I really loved the collar, colors, and stripes. As I was looking at it I realized I had fluid blue fabric that matched the blue stripes exactly. In a short amount of time I made this shirt into a dress, and you can too!"
