I'm pretty excited about Elsie & Rachel's Project ReStyle going on this year. I participated by making this men's western shirt into a nice summer skirt for myself. It might look a little wonky on the dressform, but that's because I had to pin it to fit that teeny frame. I can't wait to wear it with my newly found Victorian corset cover (with a slip underneath, of course.)!
The process of the transformation was as easy as chopping off the top of the shirt, and taking in the sides of the shirt a little at the top. Last, I added a strip of fabric from the sleeves to the top, adding a button enclosure. I'm not very good at button holes, but I suppose it doesn't matter because it'll just be covered up by a belt. :)
