This is not a fashion blog ... but

I just made this super cool oversized dress shirt number.  Some chick that was staying with me left a size 14 linen Marco Pecci shirt (along with a lot of other old clothes) at my house.  

So with some clever stitching on my sweetheart Husqvarna, I made this ... additional large Fat Face leather belt (cut about a meter off it and neatly tucked the severed end underneath) and we're done ... tres chic.   

Now I can see why those lovely ladies at Lavander and Yolk, Trish Hunter Finds, On Dressing Up and the beautiful Thrift Candy get carried away with the op shop, hand-me down, on sale at (insert shop here) garb grabs and take pics and post ... 

BTW excuse the complete crappiness of the pics ... I usually photograph things I can see through the viewfinder.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! You are so talented! My goal this year is to buy a sewing machine and learn how to use it!

Hey! This looks great. So a dress from an oversized shirt? I wish I had the sewing gene.

Aw, thanks, that's so sweet!
Your shirt dress turned out wonderfully! I actually just thrifted a big ol' dress myself that I hope to turn into a cute little one soon. I'll post about it if it works out... fingers crossed ;)

Thankyou for tagging me! You have a lovely blog!
You've done rather well on the dress!!
I've been meaning to bring out the sewing machine for a while now.
I have all these frumpy dresses that i've been waiting for summer to wear and now its too hot to be bothered to sew haha.
Ah well.
Yess my poor mum, i'm still laughing!

Hey thanks for the link. That dress looks great.
I really love your brooches on etsy too - especially all the little words.
