Make A Ruffle Dress From Mens Button Down Shirts

"Make a menswear-inspired shirt dress from 3 men's dress shirts purchased at the thrift store. Start with a well-fitting shirt to save time. Then make ruffles from the other 2 shirts. This upcycle project is easy for beginners because it's all straight-line sewing. In less than one hour, you'll have a lightweight, flowy dress perfect for warmer weather. Or make it in flannel for cooler weather. Have fun mixing patterns and colors to make it your own design."
