Does your husband/Dad/relative/friend have a button down shirt in good condition they no longer use? Or two? Or three?
I’m going to show you several ways to re-purpose a men’s shirt to make a dress, a skirt, or an apron!!
Here’s how to have a new strapless dress or tunic top using a men’s long sleeve shirt!!
With the shirt unbuttoned, center the shirt collar on your back and wrap it around under your arms. The buttons land in front and button it wherever you find it comfortable.
If you use the buttons further down, then tuck or roll the shirt above where you buttoned.
Button all the buttons (make sure they line up – or not. In my case they did not line up, but you can hide that it doesn’t match pretty well)!
Now the sleeves are at your sides.
Wrap the sleeves to either side and tie into a knot or bow.
Or, try some other styles!!
