90's Dress Refashion

I don't sew very often.  And when I do, my projects usually fail, but once in a while it works out.  Like this time when I transformed an old thrift-store dress into a shirt.  Not too hard.  I mostly just had to shorten it.

Here's what it looked like before.  Too long for a shirt, too short for a dress.

After hemming it up I attached the crochet collar I made last year.  It goes so well with this!  I'm excited!
