Upcycled Shirt Dress - The Rebecca Dress

I don't know about you but I love a classic shirt dress.
That's what this upcycled Paganoonoo Rebecca Dress is, a classic shirtdress. 

Using men's shirts as a starting point is a fantastic way to take advantage of the the already completed details such as collars, cuffs, plackets, buttonholes, etc. 

Men's shirts are typically made of great fabric and have excellent construction details making them the perfect choice for upcycling. 

To make your own version, purchase this set of Paganoonoo detailed step-by-step instructions.

These instructions will work for anyone who can find a shirt that fits their bust and shoulders in a way they like.  All the rest of the sizing falls out of that starting shirt. They are available as a PDF file and hard copy on the Paganoonoo Etsy store.

This dress takes 3 to 6 dress shirts, depending on the size and color choices. Intermediate sewing skills are needed. 

Happy Upcycling!
