I {Heart} Making Shirt Dresses

I thought I would share with you the new shirt-dress I made last night.

All you need is a 1 1/2 yards of knit fabric, an old shirt and a pattern for a dress that has a waistband and pockets. I used this dress pattern. I chose the coral because it is "so hot right now" and looks pretty against my turquoise necklace too.

The fabric only cost me $5.47 (I had a 50% off coupon) and I've had this Old Navy top for over 3 years. I have a few more shirts I want to make into dresses because these are so effortless for summer.
