Polo shirt to Polo dress?

I came across some cheap sales of adult polo shirts at the morning market today!  The fabric quality is so I just have to grab a few.  I'm don't wear polo shirt a lot... actually I was thinking of some refashion experiment when I was purchasing those shirts.

This is my first attempt...after seen so many of polo shirts redo in the blogland and Pinterest.  So, this is what I did to one of the polo shirts...  (sorry, I was too excited that I forgot to snap the before picture)

I add about 4 layers of ruffles at the bottom of the shirt and make it looks like a dress
this is the back view
I left some space and tie the end of the ruffles into a knot

Add a flower in front
