How-to: Make a Dress From Two Shirts

pin the collars
Take the top part of the buttoned-down shirt and cut the collar portion and down the sides of the neckline, leaving two inches for seam allowance. Insert the buttoned down shirt inside the t-shirt. Fold back the opening of the t-shirt neckline into a v-neck. Pin the collar of the button down shirt inside the t-shirt. Don’t worry about the raw edges in the back as they will be covered with the collar but if you want to, you can finish the hem on the t-shirt. But remember, the opening of the shirt will get larger if you hem. Once the collar is pinned, sew around the neckline.

Can you see you are almost done?
