Before you throw out your husband's old dress shirts...

...try this little diddy.


It goes great with black patent tap shoes. And most importantly, it brings out the Elaine Benes in all of us.

Summer,
I was just asking Jason today if he had any old shirts I could do this with. I saw the tutorial the other day and thought I would try it. Was it hard?

Summer said...

Well, I would not know considering the fact that I didn't even attempt to make it. My Mom did. She said it wasn't bad at all, but considering she is a creative genius I don't know if I would trust her opinion. However, the tutorial instructions look really detailed and I noticed that she has updated and clarified them several times to make them as easy as possible...
