The first dress for my then one year old daughter I made from her uncle’s shirt that he not even wore once. For him this shirt had no value as my sister bought it too small. I loved the fabric and its bright colours – which looked fabulous on my little girl.

As I wanted my girl’s dress to fit for a while, I came up with my own pattern to fit as a dress and later on as a shirt. To me it was equally important to create a dress that is easy to put on, comfortable to wear and that looks smart.

My daughter, now four, loves her dresses and I am happy to have found a way to give shirts a second chance to live on and keep memories alive.

Oh and by the way… I’m wearing the same design in a shirt version because combined with my necktie-belts they just look very chic! There is also no need of opening the buttons – the shirt slips over your head easily.
