This weeks Challenge: Socks or Tights (Rejected)
I’ve had this shirt sitting in my stash for an upcycle project for at least a year now, so when deciding the challenges for the upcycle challenge I wanted to make sure to choose a challenge that would allow me to use it.
I decided it would be perfect to turn into a Paradise Dress. I struggled a little with the placement of the pattern pieces until I decided to take the pocket off, which gave me a little bit more room to move the pieces around, I managed to save the existing hem. Once I had my pieces cut I used the left over parts to cut strips to turn into binding for the straps. Once the dress was finished I relocated the pocket to the bottom of the skirt.
I love the look that keeping the button placket has given the dress and am now even more excited to make something from the other shirts in my stash.
