Shirt Refashion Part Duex

Did you guess the secret to the shirt in this posting?

While it is from Target, it isn't from the women's department. 
I am letting a dirty little secret out of the bag here.
Are you ready for it???
I sometimes shop in the girls' department!!
I know I am probably breaking some fashion code, but I am cool with it. (Just don't tell Clinton and Stacy.)

Why, hello there red tag? 

And what are you attached to?

It may not look like much more than a knit dress right now, but I saw potential in this little turquoise gal. (Her and two of her friends, black and pink.)

The first order of business was to loss the front pockets.
Next up, convert it from a dress into a shirt by taking off some length.

Not too bad.

Miss Pink is done, but I think that Miss Turquoise needs a little something extra.
That little ruffle by the yoke does the trick.

And Miss Black needs some flower detail on her yoke.

Are you ready for your close-up, Miss Black?

All in all, not too shabby. Three shirts for less than $10.

You know how I am about reinventing wheels?
Here are a few links you may find helpful in creating your own t-shirt refashions:

These refashions seem to be all the rage these days. Just do a Google search and you will find more than enough help out there!

Brilliant! I was about to comment how I would love to shop in the Jrs department except that length doesn't work for me (for only being 5'6" I have a freakishly long torso), but a tunic or dress would be perfect - and leave extra fabric for embellishments. I love how they all turned out, and you're right, you cannot beat the price!

Great find. I don't think there is anything wrong with shopping in the little girl's department so long as the clothes fit. I love that you made all three of the tops unique. Great job and thanks for linking them up.
