As I mentioned in the previous post, I have been spending a lot of time at the sewing machine making shirts for the Cupcake Kids. After I finished up my final round (for now) of shirts last night, I decided to try again at making a T-Shirt dress. My first attempt had failed miserably and destroyed a shirt in the process. I needed redemption.

I tried to learn from my mistakes and do a better job this time around. Here’s what came out of it:

 Not quite a ruffly as I would have hoped, but still cute. Next time I will add a couple of inches to the length of the fabric to account for more ruffles. I did this late at night and the kids were in bed. Next time I’ll be sure to measure the waist of the one who will be wearing the dress.  I might add a little bit to the length as well… I have some tall kids.
Baby Girl likes it. Although, it didn’t have much give around the waist and was a little tough to get her into it. I will probably try again later on another shirt and see what modifications I can make.
You can find the tutorial that I used here. I am not very good at following directions… which explains the lack of ruffles on Baby Girl’s dress… but the tutorial is great and easy to follow.

    It's still cute! We'll have to work on it when you guys are up. I'm thinking of turning the breakfast room into a sewing/crafting center for the weekend. 😉
