Easy steps of making off  shoulder dress from a shirt

  • 1st remove the pockets from the shirt. But if you like to keep the pocket, you can keep it.
  • Mark the length of your dress. If you want a too short dress you can cut some fabric off from the shirt. But it’s always better to have extra fabric. So be careful when you are cutting the shirt. we can’t add fabric for your dress if it accidentally becomes too short.
  • Next, cut off the neckline. If you are going to cut the neck measure half of the shoulder measurement. You just have to mark the middle point. What I recommend is take less fabric 1st. for example, take one inch 1st   from the collar side and cut it, check it and wear it. If you feel comfortable with that measurement you can carry on but if you want to wide neck you can increase it.  For complete the neckline,
  • Now using a top or a dress that perfectly fit your body, trace your dress.when you are tracing always leave one or two inches extra for seam allowance. Now cut it off.
  • Sew or glue both sides of the top.  You can cut off the button from the top or you can keep the buttons. If you cut the buttons stitch sides together. Hem both armholes.
  • Now we are officially done with sewing. Cut off extra fabrics and treads for a perfect finish.
