Quick T-Shirt Dress Tutorial
Ya I know! And that’s not the only thing……it cost less than 5.00! I’m talking another one of those sales at Joann (sigh….I’m going to have to get a job there to support my trips) It really just cost me 4.50. EEEEK! I think I need to go back….get more…..it’s sick (and not the good sick, right?) Then I came up with this Quick T-Shirt Dress Tutorial. Grab the FREE PRINTABLE too!
I love a good t-shirt dress, but there’s a problem. I’m taller than the average women. I just googled that question and was astonished. I’m much taller than the average woman! It said that the height for the average woman is 5’4″, and if we’re talking about someone in Asia and South America it’s 5’0″ (I’m an amazon there)
Ahem. So back to my problem. I can
never rarely buy an off-the-rack t-shirt dress. They are too short. Like 4-6 inches above my knee. Then I’m always tugging at them worried that they’re too short (because that is too short for me) So this solved the problem. I was so excited when the idea came to me, drawing what was in my brain and then transferring it to the t-shirts. Thinking and cutting, sewing and thinking some more. I love it and when I put it one I loved it even more. I know it’s hard to see the simple details in the pictures but it falls nicely and is top stitched and has two slit pockets in the front (sigh). This quick T-shirt Dress is a keeper! (and yeah, next it’s making it for kids)
All Year Long Dress
The best thing about this classic dress is that it will take you through all 4 seasons. YUP! Add a jacket or a sweater, tights and boots and it’s great for winter, a sweater and flats and you’re set for spring or fall. A complimentary scarf as well…..I could go on (and on). You get it! Easy enough to wear with flip flops or birkenstock’s in the summer or even a modest swim suit cover.
Okay, enough with the photo shoot:) You can see how it looks in gray ( I made it a little shorter in this version!) I have to credit my son for being a good sport to take the pictures at a moment’s notice. Good job Evan!
I have a FREE PRINTABLE for this quick t-shirt dress tutorial and and video as well. Of course there is no pattern and you make it to fit you with a few measurements you take.
- 2 T-Shirts (I used the women’s cut one from Joann and the x-large Mens one also from Joann. You could use any two t-shirts…you could even do stripes for the top, plain for the bottom…the varieties can be endless)
- Sewing Machine
- Matching Thread
- Sharp Sewing Scissors
- Chalk (I used an old piece of sidewalk chalk)
- Straight Pins
- Sewing Machine Needle for Knits (optional but they say it slides through the fabric instead of breaking it)
