DIY t shirt to dress

Spring looks like it has arrived at last and to celebrate I felt that to go with the nice warm weather a nice spring dress to liven up my wardrobe. I decided to make my own. I bought a XL t shirt from h&m for 5 and cut the sleeves off.
I added a lace peter pan collar that I made. I sewed it just under the tshirt collar ribbing.
Because the bottom of the sleeve ends at my waist I then sew it up from just under my arm to the end to make it into an A line skirt.
The end result is a tunic dress. It needs to be belted to make a flattering waist. I think that for 5 it's a pretty good dress.
