DIY Off The Shoulder Dress | Button Down Shirt Transformation | Jeanae Melisa


Hey guys it’s your girl Jeanae Melisa and
this is part three to my how to transform a button-down shirt mini series.
So, if you haven’t seen part 1 or part 2 make sure you click over there on that “i” in the corner and it will take you to both of those videos, but for now I’m
going to show you guys how I made this off the shoulder button-down dress. Yeah, so
let’s get started. So I’m starting off with this men’s button-down shirt which I got in a larger size so that I could wear it as a dress, but it ended up coming out a
little shorter than I wanted it to and now I’m just taking these pins and I’m
placing them across the top of the shirt just so I can have a guide for when I
cut the top of the shirt off. And now I’m taking my scissors and I’m cutting the top of the shirt off. So now and i’m folding the top of the shirt about an
inch down because that’s the width of the elastic that I got. So depending on
your width of elastic is how far down you’re gonna fold it. and now I’m just
taking pins and I’m pinning the top down just so that when I go to sew it it
stays in place. So now that I’m finished pinning I’m just taking it to the
filling machine and I’m pinning it down but you want to make sure that when you
go to sew it that you’re leaving about an inch or two worth of an opening so
that you can insert the elastic through So now I’m measuring around my shoulder
area so I can get an idea of how long the elastic needs to be And then you’re going to cut how ever much elastic you need. So now I’m taking a safety pin
and I’m pinning it through the end of one side of the elastic just so that’s
easier to pull through the shirt and then I’m going to insert it into one
side of the shirt and just start pulling it through the entire shirt Once I have the elastic all the way
through I’m just going to go ahead and sew the two ends of the elastic together. And finally I’m going to close the gap that I left open earlier by folding over
the fabric and sewing on top of it. Thank you guys so much for watching this video if
