she did it well

I have followed Dana's great blog for awhile now. I always get inspiration there. She made a dress from her husband's dress shirt and she really did it well. I love it to say the least. She let me share it with you. You should check out her blog to see all the many other fashion re-do's. I just love the yellow waist band. I made me go back to the drawing board and make another one from a shirt my mother in law gave me from Good Will this week (but, shhhh...don't tell her I cut it up - it was supposed to be for me!). I will post it tomorrow. It's late and now I have to draw some giveaway winners.

Oh, meeee meeee meeee!

I have actually had this link saved in my bookmarks for a long time:

(A great little cap-sleeved shirt made from a men's shirt -- love it!) I would love to find the time to make one of these for myself.

After seeing your original dress, and now this one, I'm DEFINITELY going to have to give this a try!

Love your blog too!

You are too, toooooo sweet! Thank you for the personal blog post shout out! I love that the crafting world is a whole forum of ideas. As you can see, I've gathered much of my inspiration from your fabulous blog too!
Can't wait to see what you come up with next. I actually went to Goodwill last night and bought two more shirts. Haha. It's addicting.
