I didn’t think I would have a sew crafty this week because I spent most of my time in the garden. However, I have been wanting to make the toddler dress out of the man’s shirt for a few months now, so I started it last night. I was going to post a tutorial, but this one is so good, I didn’t bother.
I did modify the design a little, but this was easy cheesy, as my kids like to say. I think even a non sewer could make this dress. It didn’t take me an hour, and that included dropping the ironing board on my toe and limping around the house for a while. The biggest challenge in finishing the dress, was that my daughter loved it so much she kept wanting to wear it before it was finished. Here are a few pictures, once again, she was dancing in most of them so it was hard to get a good shot.
I can’t wait to find some more shirts so I can do this again, and again, and again….
Total cost was $2 for the shirt at the thrift store, I can’t wait for yard sale season to start and I can purchase shirts for a quarter!
