Shirt > Dress

Another re-purposed piece of clothing. This dress started out as a button up shirt.
You can see the original button placket on the back of the dress. I did however have to make 2 additional buttonholes to close the back yoke.
The vintage pattern I modified.

I lowered the neckline, omitted the collar, left the sleeves full, added a detachable bow and pockets, and lengthened it. The fabric of the shirt/dress has a soft feel and beautiful texture.
