DIY: Cut A Dress Into a Shirt

I've had this dress for a couple of years now. I've worn it so many times as a dress that I wanted to do something different to it...and I wanted a new outfit! lol

 These pics were taken a couple of weeks after I delivered Khloa Boa in April...

Here's the finished product! (taken a week ago)
You can even use some of the material to make a headband....

I cut the dress as best I could. It's in no way a perfect straight line all the way across...I do advise drawing a line w/ a marker or something else where you want to cut. If you can sew (unlike me!), you could hem the bottom a little. This was a great way to make my dress into a new outfit. I've had the dress for years so it was ready to do a lil' something to it. ;-) Or if you have a dress like this you could make it into a shorter dress. Just another idea....
Make sure you are following me on Twitter & Facebook for more of my ramblings about hair and anything else I want to talk about. :-)
