How to sew a stylish dress from a denim shirt Husband!

Posted by: Julia Shlykova

For a long time I looked at it with admiration for all the variety of reincarnations of shirts in dresses, but I didn’t particularly interfere with my husband’s wardrobe for this purpose. Until, once again, when sorting out the wardrobe, I did not find a denim shirt there from the time of our student days with him (and it was frightening to think it was already ... a long time ago, in general).

Actually, here it is, this trophy of mine:

Surprised that she didn’t get rid of her during the last revision, she resolutely got ready to do it this time and put it in a bag with things “for relocation” (“things for relocation ”- these are my things that are still quite excellent for themselves, but completely annoying, so I don’t throw them away, but look for new owners for them, sending them to various charity events or just taking them to church). Well, and how often it happens to me, I didn’t manage to take this bag right away. This time fortunately.

I do not remember,exactly how this idea came to me (not new at that time for me), but I finally decided to remake this shirt in a summer dress-sundress for outdoor activities and replenish the already diverse Internet collection of ideas on this sentimental topic.

But jokes aside. Let's get down to business.

It is logical that first you need to decide on the model (otherwise it will turn out “go there, I don’t know where”, and so on in the text). I wanted a free dress-bag, close to the sporty style. As a basis for this, I took the pattern of model 121A from Burda on 8/2015:

The sleeves immediately - to the side (I have a summer dress according to the plan!). The insert with the folds - too. The front pattern was divided into two parts, mercilessly cutting it above the recesses in accordance with its idea and based on the geometry of the details of the source material (shirt).

Well, now, you can now break into all serious things, that is, proceed to cutting! Yaba-da-ba-doo !. Since I got the “trophy” rather large (as much as the 54th size!), I didn’t bother with rasping, but just cut the seams (for those who divide a smaller man, I recommend to sever the seams - a couple of centimeters cracking can play an important role). The layout of the pattern I got this:

From the front of the shirt

All the details of the front part of the shirt I decided to keep on the strength of the fact that on jeans all the otporotoe clearly visible. From the transfer of the shirt, we cut the lower front part of the dress, aligning the waist line (on the dress) with the middle of the height of the shirt pockets. One layer of the coquette was cut off (usually it is double on men's shirts).

From the back of a shirt

From the back, respectively, we cut out the lower part of the back of the dress, combining the upper cut with a seam, along which the shirt yoke is sewn.

Of shirtless sleeves

From the sleeves we cut out the upper parts of the gear and the backrest with a fold in the middle of each part. In order to “cram” patterns of new parts in framed sleeves, I had to cut it upside down (in the photo, the lower cut goes beyond the sleeve, but this is the initial pattern, cut out in the end along the dotted line that can be seen on the pattern). If a shirt with a pattern or from a fabric for which the direction of the cut is important, such a number may not pass.

Optional step: from the remains of the sleeves we cut the sackcloths of the pockets (the pockets made in the side seams).

Successfully "wedging" all the details and sighing with relief, joyfully cut out and proceed to sewing. If you do not make pockets,the algorithm is quite simple: the undercuts, the upper part of the front is connected to the lower part, we do the same for the back, then the shoulder and side seams - a total of 6 seams!

P.S. I had another nuance related to the nature of the fabric.
