Today's piece comes from my girl Marcia in Brazil! I love her before piece because it's something that many of us can procure for nada from our dad/husband/brother/boyfriend/BFF/anyone of the male species.
Hello dear Marisa, I live in Guarulhos, São Paulo, Brazil and recently I left a job where I worked for six years because I could not take it anymore. After finishing the job, I sat in front of my sewing machine for hours on end, and I never stopped. I always seek inspiration for my customizations on your blog, so I decided to shoot a before this time! Looking for projects for my crafting, I came across a huge basket of men's shirts.
I loved the pattern...
...and the store was selling them for $2 (R$ 4,00 quatro reais, in Brazilian money), so I couldn’t resist!
Just what will Marcia do with the shirt?
So, I bought one and transformed in a dress!
It worked, and I loved it. I even went back to the store and bought ten more shirts :) I will enjoy transforming all my out-of-style men's shirts into beautiful new dresses!!
How cute are you? Removing the collar, stitching up the bottom of the shirt, and then cinching with a belt is just lovely! I love the orange colors with your skin too, Marcia! Send over images of the other shirts you remake - we'd love to see!!
