All I did was take an existing shirt from my 3 yr olds stash, cut a strip from a different shirt for the contrasting band, and added the bottom hem of one of my old shirts for the skirt portion. I think it took me about 45 minutes to cut and sew one up. Easy, peasy!
I ended up making 4 dresses for my 3 yr old and 1 for my 8 yr old. (I cut up a total of 7 shirts for the 5 dresses.) Two of the dresses started out with long sleeves, but since they were getting too short, I cut the sleeves off and re-hemmed them short. How's that for recycling?
I love how the dress sits a bit lower on the hips. It looks so comfy!
Has anyone else done a recycled tee project? We'd love to see your ideas, too! Leave us a link in the comments...
