DIY: See How Carole Turned A Shirt Into Something Amazing!

(Last Updated On: June 20, 2017)

Sewing is really fun, you know… What you are about to see is a simple step by step DIY Dress lesson Carole Cardinal, a fashion designer, and textile management degree holder shared on her blog.

Before and after images showing the amazing transformation.

I thought I had seen it all… not until I came across Carole’s Cardinal Sewing Nest. There are tons of posts up on her blog where she shares her favorite style tips and sewing designs, but one caught my attention the most. It was her post on DIY clothes.

Why did she do this?

In her words, she “wanted to refashion a men’s shirt into an off-the-shoulders blouse.”

The end result was nothing short of spectacular. Kudos Carole! You did a great job.

Now let’s find out what she did, and how she did it. Additionally, you’ll get a chance to know more about her at the end of this post. Shall we?

So, shall we?

What she used.

  • A large shirt.
  • A sketch of the end design.
  • A sewing machine.
  • Threads.
  • Lace material.
  • A seam ripper.
  • An electric pressing iron and the accompanying ironing board.

Well, let me not let the cat out of the bag. Here’s the link to the full post on Carole’s blog, Cardinal Sewing NestYou’ll certainly love this, I’m sure you will. Carole outlined the process of making the DIY dress step by step, leaving no stone unturned.

Let’s meet her.
