Hello Readers. I had so many t-shirts from recent hand-me-downs. I was pretty happy about it. They were the perfect material for a new great dress.
I pulled these t-shirts out of a hand-me-down bag (Thanks Sue C.!) and liked the soft earth tones. They were all neutral and I thought they would work well together.
I started by cutting the body of each shirt off the shoulder and neckline of each shirt. I was going to connect the shirts together to make a maxi dress.
My dress was all connected and I liked the length. I am really short so maxi dresses are usually too long on me. I never buy them because they don't fit. Making a maxi dress for myself was the best way to go. I have a 6 year old and there are always toys and Lego blocks all over my sewing area. I usually crop them out of my pictures but let's just keep it real this time.
I wore my dress for the first time and I liked it a lot. It was just what I wanted. I thought the belt helped give it a more defined high waist.
Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself. If you are following along with my $0 spending plan for 2021then this dress cost nothing. It was all made from hand-me-downs.
***Chickie's Year End Review-I loved this dress. I love the colors and it was a serious scrap buster. It was a great transition piece from summer to fall as well.
