sunshine in a dress

i had seen the original tutorial by a few weeks ago to transform a men's shirt into a dress and thought - wow, that's a great idea, but i couldn't resist posting this breezy, little seaside dress that the blog made posted. i absolutely adore the yellow casing she added to the waist and the finishing of the neckline. she even has a the little detail of her label on the side of the skirt - so cute. you can read about her process here.

i am itching to attack jer's old cast-offs that are just lazing in a bag in our closet whispering "sew me, sew me", man, i gotta get that quilt done so i can get the next gazillion projects i have waiting done. doesn't this dress make you want to go run in the sunshine barefoot? is summer here yet?

have any of you made anything like this? i would love to hear about it!
