Matching set was so in trend last summer and Shirt dress is making quite a trend this summer. But here i'm doing something totally contradictory. I have this shirt dress on my closet since past 2 years or so and i barely wore it, may be once! Cause the silhouette was so unflattering for my body type simultaneously i couldn't avoid the beautiful details it has - ruffles, subtle tucks. So, finally i decided to transform it into something wearable.

                                           YOU WILL NEED:

  •  a shirt dress
  • seam opener 
  • needle, thread or sewing machine 

First thing to do is lay the dress flat, turn it inside out in order to open the seam. 

You will have two sections like this.You can either cut the dress from the mid section but if your dress is as short as mine be careful cause you are going to turn the waistband over which will make it shorter anyway. 

Hem the edge of your crop top. For the waist band i folded about 2 inch keeping the space to thread elastic through.I apologize for not posting that step here.  


This is such a multi-functional outfit set. Can be worn with mid-heel or sandals or styled individually, and perfect from morning until the evening.
