Step 2: Making the Bodice

For the top of the dress, choose a large or extra large shirt without a pocket. Cut the shirt across at the underarms, set aside the top of shirt to cut into squares later. Put the bottom of the shirt inside out on the dress form, or have a friend pin it around you. Pin the sides and darts. Unbutton and sew the front and back darts. Sew the side seams.

This is so cute. I bought some large mens tops from a thrift shop to make a summer dress a few weeks ago and did not know where to start this will help a lot thanks
Oh my gosh! I I love it so much!
Thanks! The dress got a red ribbon at the Recycle Art Show.
Very nice reuse. :D
