Michelle at MichellePatterns is doing another challenge this week 🙂 It’s called the pinterest challenge (it’s not too late to participate and do the giveaway!) and you have to make something inspired from something you pinned on pinterest… I saw lots of dresses made from t-shirt tops so I decided to give it a go! (here’s another one for inspiration)
Remember the white cami I dyed? I finally used it 😉 Along with some fabric my friend Katrina gave me (Hi Redrane!)
It was going to be for Camille, since I find it hard to find some cute dresses the length we like.
I cut the cami about 4 inches under the arm.
Sew 2 strips together to make a long one and ruffled it with my sewing machine.
I then pinned it around the collar and cut the over and sewed the 2 end together to make a loop and sewed it on.
The purpose of this ruffle is to make more girly and to hide some of the dye stains 🙂
Next I measured the length I wanted and cut the fabric accordingly (width is selvage from selvage). Sewed the selvage together.
Gathered it and sewed it on the cami.
Made a ruffle with the fabric remnant and added it to the skirt. Put a cute belt and you’re done!
When I showed it to her when she came back from school she squealed with delight and was wearing it the next morning (so the pictures are taken before she left for school and she ‘s standing up on her dresser lol!)
