Another Girl’s T-Shirt Dress


When I found girls’ T-shirts on an amazing sale (like the one I used for this dress), I also bought a coral and a gray/white striped version to combine into another dress. The gather in the bodice is simply a skinny piece of elastic threaded between the seam attaching the top and bottom and the topstitching that keeps the seam edges facing down.  I love these colors together, and I found some pretty orange buttons in my stash to use on the fabric flower a-la-mode. (Click photo for a larger view.) Plus, since I used the top of one T and the bottom of the other, I have more lovely remnants to use for a future project. I can’t wait to give this to a special little girl! ♥

  1. Yet another great idea. Although as I have an abundance of t shirts in the wardrobes of all members of the family, (T-shirts are almost considered a uniform in Australia), I would probably combine one or two of these to start with… Thanks for sharing!

    • Aww . . . thank you! I got to give it to a sweet little girl last weekend! She ran upstairs and changed and wore it the rest of the day. 🙂 And then she took the flower pin off and pinned it to whatever else she was wearing that weekend. 🙂
