Refashion - Men's Shirt to Girls Dress

I've been really anxious to sew.  My stuff was all packed in the garage, but I finally got it out/organized.  However my free time is very limited so I wanted a project to do that was quick and didn't take too much thought.  I saw the shirt dress in blog land a while back and Google turned up this shirt dress tutorial for me which worked perfectly.

The shirt was a gift from a student to Floyd.  Not exactly his style, but it is silk and pretty.  I thought it would be very nice for Selena.

Here is the before:

And here is the after:

Now the only problem is laundering a silk play dress. ;)  The project was very easy.  My only comment is a reminder to pay attention to where the buttons lie when placing the pattern.  I put the edge too close to a button so when I went to fold it over to make the casing the button was in the way.  So I had to pick off the button and move it down.
