Shirt Refashion: Daisy Fuentes Tunic

The other day while looking for fabric to make a skirt I found this dress. (excuse my face, I was multitasking by taking pictures while I was on the phone. now you know what I look like when I talk on the phone)

I thought that I had already cut a chunk out of it but when I looked at it I realized that I hadn't. I loved this dress and wore it like a shirt but my man-shoulders were apparently too large for the armholes. One day when I stretched just the wrong way, I heard tearing on the sleeve. There were quite a few of these tears so it was either use the fabric for scrap or do what I did...

I seam-ripped the sleeves and made it a sleeveless dress. I turned over the fabric twice and sewed around the openings. I paired it with my black leggings and wore it to church on Sunday. I love it without the sleeves.

I wore it with my Layers of my Heart necklace with an add-on briolette. And this (below) is what happens when I have hubby do the photoshoot. He loves to take so many pictures that I get some great outtakes (and some shots that will never go on the blog).

  1. Love what you did with it! It looks adorable. Now I'm all inspired to go pull things from my closet and start ripping and cutting and sewing :)

  2. That is soo cute! Such a smart idea. I was just thinking today of how I could add sleeves to a tank top I have. Wish it were as easy as cutting them off. I love your shirt refashions though.. more please! ;)

  3. Love it so much. great job and you are so cute!! Way to go my dear friend!

  4. SO smart!! Now that makes me want to pull out my seam ripper and see what I can do!
