Sometimes we really do have what to wear in our closet. It only takes a few ideas and a new outfit comes to live. I got a plain casual dress from Jumia for their Jumia Easter Sales Campaign – the intention was to transform this dress into a ruffle shirt dress for Easter feasting. I basically just thought of making a ruffle shirt dress.
Shirt dresses are dresses suitable for all body types – anyone can wear a shirt dress and look absolutely gorgeous in it. They are also very easy to make.
You really do not have to know how to use a sewing machine to make a ruffle shirt dress. An option might be to find a tailor that could assist you. For this tutorial, my friend – a fashion designer assisted me with the sewing while I gave her the idea of how I wanted it to look like. Not that I couldn’t go with my usual hand sewing method. I just needed a faster option.
Below is a short tutorial on how I transformed a plain casual dress to a ruffle shift dress. I used men’s shirt that I also got from Jumia to create the ruffle at the hem of the sleeves and dress.
I hope you’ve learnt something new! Do let me know what you rhink bout this diy?
