I had a t-shirt that didn’t really fit me (and had a bleach stain on the collar), so I made it into a little dress –
I used Prudent Baby’s “Pillowcase” baby dress pattern. It was a pretty good project, I like the easy pattern and lines. I like how once it gets too small it can be turned in to a skirt by just cutting off the top and adding an elastic casing. I am way proud of myself – I cut strips of the t-shirt and used them to bind the armholes with –
It’s not perfect, but pretty awesome for my first attempt!
- Used French seams again; they look great but next time I need to remember to add a little more seam allowance to compensate.
- Next time, sew the armhole binding a little further away from the edge so it’s not so small.
