Help me choose which one I should refashion next! This is episode #5 of Refashion Vision, where I take you thrift shopping with me and I brainstorm right then and there how I’d refashion each clothing item.
This one was hard for me guys! It usually takes me 5-15 seconds before images and ideas pop into my mind but maybe because I took a 6 month break, I was rusty! But I was able to come up with cute ideas for all of the options at the end, whew!
Help me choose which item to refashion next by voting in the comments! The # with the most votes will be the one I’ll tackle next!

Let’s go down the memory lane and look at 7 ways I transformed an old men/women’s shirts into dresses or tops. I am currently working on another men’s shirt refashion and have lots of old shirts in my “refashion pile” so I am sure this won’t be the first compilation!
#1 and #2: I bought two of the same shirts so with the 2nd one, I turned it into a girl’s dress, I took in the sides, made the sleeves skinnier and shorter, then with the extra fabric added the waist tie and the ruffles on the shoulders.
#3 I transformed a plain shirt into a shirt with pleated sleeves with a ribbon trim and a bow in the back.
#4 I transformed a XXL men’s shirt into a fitted dress for my daughter. I cut the middle of the shirt, made the bodice much smaller, gathered the bottom to make a gathered skirt,and attached it back. I also made the sleeves into an elbow length.
#5 this was when I entered a competition called refashion runway and the theme was gingham. So I turned a XL men’s shirt into a crop top and a skirt set with a matching headband using the collar.
#6 was also for refashion runway and the theme was stripes and flora. I used a Large stripled women’s shirt and transformed it into a dress and then for the floral theme, added red tulip pockets.
You made it to #7! I turned a large men’s shirt into a bell sleeve dress with a v-neck line in the back for my daughter.
Let me know which of the 7 was your favorite and if you’d like to see me transform more old shirts, give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel! See you next time!
