A dress from two shirts!!

I want to share my latest project with you all. I found a great tutorial here about how to make a dress from a shirt. I decided to use two shirts that I found at the Good Will for $0.50 each.

I used this shirt as the top.  I folded it in half and cut off the sleeves and the collar.  I folded in what was left of the sleeves and added a hem. 

I used this shirt for the bottom of the dress.  It was an XL shirt to begin with.  I cut it off under the sleeves.  I measured how big it needed to be and hemmed up both sides, cutting off the excess.

To finish the dress off I sewed the two pieces together and added a piece of elastic.  I also made some scruchie flowers to the top of the dress.

This is end result.  It is not perfect, but I don't think it is too bad for my first dress.
