I have another camp shirt to upcycle. I decided this beautiful color palette would make a beautiful summer dress.
I started by cutting off the sleeves and the top of the shirt right under the collar.
I removed the top button, pinned and hemmed the top edges.
I put the shirt/dress on inside out and pinned it down the sides to fit. Once I got to the waist, I took the dress off and pinned it the rest of the way down angling out to the bottom corners. I sewed each side and cut off the excess.
I turned it right side out and it fit perfectly! No need for straps I was afraid I was going to have to add.
