I was out shopping at a thrift stores one day and found this shirt. I loved the fabric , but it was about 2 sizes to small for me, but I bought it anyway because it was dirt cheap (25 cents!!!) and I knew I could make something from it. I was wanting to make Aiyanna a dress the other day so I pulled out this shirt and Tada!!!
I LOVE how it turned out!
This is a super simple project that took about 30 minutes to do.
Here is the shirt I started with.
Cut off the sleeves.
Cut the shoulder strap about 1.5 inches before the seam on the front of the shirt.
Then I put the shirt on Aiyanna and pinned the sides to fit. I played with the straps until I liked how it looked.
Using my pins as guides I cut the sides of the shirt.
I french seamed the sides and finished the arm holes.
Then I sewed the straps to the front and hemmed the bottom to shorten it some. I left the original hem so I can let it out as she gets taller.
