I already made a tutorial for a two-piece dress with a men’s shirt last year but I loved it so much I made a new version this summer! When I saw this shirt I knew I HAD to make something out of it!!
It’s super quick to make just go raid your dad/husband/boyfriend/brother’s closet!
This version is even easier than last year (but the top maybe isn’t as nice?) Let me know what you think!
1- Start with your shirt, at least size L. Cut a straight line from arm pit to arm pit.
I made a small hem at the top to make it nicer
2. To make the skirt, Simply add a wide elastic that you cut about 7 cm shorter than your waist size (make sure it stretches enough to go around the length of the skirt but still feel tight/loose enough)
Place the elastic on the skirt with the 4 equal parts align with the 4 parts of the skirt (to make the gather equal all around)
3- Make a ziz-zag stitch all around while pulling on the elastic as you go. The skirt is done!
4- Now take the sleeves.
5-Place them like this and fold the open sides onto themselves (this is the shoulder-arm pit part). Put a pieces of elastic inside going from one sleeve to the other (leave a small opening at the top (check the sizing on yourself)
6- In the small opening at the top, insert a piece of cord (I doubled mine) going from one to the other (check the length on yourself)
Sew everything in place
7- Check the length on yourself and cut the sleeve to the desired length to be able to tie in the front. Fold the extremities onto themselves and sew.
8- This is what you should get!
