I made this dress from one of Kelly's old dress shirts. The back of the dress was the front of the shirt, and the front of the dress was the back of the shirt. The gathered sleeves were the top of the shirt sleeves. The contrast fabric was a purple checked fabric I had in my old craft stuff. It was so easy to make!
I used this tutorial to make it. I pretty much did it the same except I did NOT do knife pleated trim at the hem, I just did a simple fat ruffle. :-D The whole project took about 2 hours.
