To see other version’s I’ve made of this dress, click here.
I’m on a mission to find out all the possibilities. Why, you might ask. Because my significant other keeps complaining about all the t-shirts I have to save that could be tossed out. (You’ll see even more in the background of the above picture).
If you are interested, I’ll show you a basic “how-to” to make this dress. I wouldn’t call it a step-by-step tutorial, because it was really late and I kept forgetting to take pictures. So I will assume if you are interested in knowing how I did this, you know the basics of constructing a dress.
After I stitched the side seams all together, I sewed on the waistband. It was made from those 1 1/2 inch pieces I cut earlier. I double layered the strips and stitched it to the dress on the waistline. I pulled on the exposed seams to make them curl up.
It’s so fun making something cute, for FREE! Oh, and if you are wondering how I made the headband, I just braided 3 narrow strips of knit. It’s so comfy, I’m thinking I just might wear a headband one of these days. I think she even forgot it was on her head, hence the reason it lasted in there the whole time I was taking pics.
It felt so rewarding de-stashing my pile down 6 whole shirts, I now feel totally justified for going to the thrift store and adding more junk to my house.
I think I have a disease. sigh.
Thanks for stopping by!
