Whiplash - Deconstruct/Reconstruct

This is my entry for this month's whiplash competition, category deconstruct/reconstruct. I bought an oversize men's dress shirt (not Jenny sized) from the thrift store for $6.

I removed the pocket and sleeves and made new side seams to fit Jenny. I created new armholes and recut the old sleeves and cuffs to make neat short sleeves.

I embroidered Jenny's name on the left side.

Then we tried different ribbons and old ties to complete the look. Outside pics turned out much better than inside pics.

Voila. Fancy personalized shirt dress from giant men's dress shirt.
