I can’t even tell you how long I’ve been looking forward to this blog post!! I have jumped on the off the shoulder bandwagon the lyndeestyles way.😂 In other words, I’m just not willing to shell out $30 for a shirt that I can make for under $10!! And trust me, you don’t have to be a master seamstress to do it
Sorry I was too lazy to take pics as I made it but I will link full instructions from another blog. I honesty could’ve have explained it better or taken better pictures than she did!! The only thing is I think it’s a little short to be a dress but that’s just me. I think it’s a nice length to wear with shorts, capris or a skirt.
have to say I’m super thrilled with the results
Here’s what you’ll need
- A size XL dress shirt. I bought mine second hand and I found some super nice quality ones for under $5. I was tempted to swipe one of hubby’s but I’ll wait til he throws one in the donation pile.
- elastic 3/4 inch is good. I got mine at the dollar store
- sewing machine
As mentioned I will link the instructions below. The tips I would suggest. Measure carefully, my first attempt I cut it too far down. Next tip is to pin. It is a little tricky around the arms
It’s really a matter of cutting off the collar of the shirt in a straight line and sewing a casing around the edge and feeding the elastic through.
I plan on making more of these! I can’t wait! My next one is a pink pinstriped one!
Have fun and check out this link below for full instructions 😃
