DIY dress....No Sewing Required!

So I've been dying to try this ever since I saw a picture of it on Pinterest! Only one problem.....the tutorial on how to do it was in some language that I had NO idea how to read!! Haha! So, with a little experimenting and coaxing my husband to take some's a tutorial on how to turn his shirt in to her dress!
 Step 1: My husband's shirt was an XL. I buttoned the third button down into the third slit on the other side
Step 2: If you're wearing the shirt, take the sleeve from the right side and cross over on top of the left sleeve.
Step 3 & 4: Take the right sleeve that you crossed over the top and push up under the bottom left sleeve so there's a loop hole {see picture below}.
Step 5 & 6: With your thumb and index finger in the loop hole described in Steps 3 & 4, pull the left sleeve that was on bottom through the loop hole. {Be sure to only pull it halfway through....don't pull the end of the sleeve thru....the part with the buttons. It helps make the other part of the bow!}

Step 7: Fix the loop hole and end of the left sleeve to look like a bow. 
Step 8: Pull down on the right sleeve to tighten up the bow.
Make it your own! :)  I'm thinking of pairing it with some leggings for a fun fall/winter look!

Hopefully this tutorial helps! 
Let me know if I need to explain anything better! Enjoy your new dress!
