Before we go any further, this is what I started with:
|Yes, that's really how 12 yr old me left it|
and reconstruct it into a duster. Do you remember those? Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen wore them... lol. ANYWAY, I didn't do a very good job, and I gave up right after doing this to it (see first before picture). Wow it looked bad!
But I came across it in my stash a few days ago thinking it had some potential. (I know right? How on Earth have I kept something in my stash for that long! I have a couple pairs of pants in there too, surprisingly.) Thanks to the new skills I learned from making Lil A's princess dress I was able to transform this pile of scrap into something functional, comfortable, warm, and freaking awesome! :D This dress will be perfect for fall here in Oregon.
I even added a few special touches to the finished product :)
I am so proud of what I've accomplished :) Hoping I will make many more shirt reconstructions in the near future :)
Thanks for reading! ♥

Crafting does in fact help time go by faster :) 3 days went by without hearing from my Marine and I didn't even notice! Still haven't gotten that package though :(
