Another t-shirt refashion

I happened to be at Wal-Mart today (I generally hate the store so I don't frequent it very often) and happened upon these cute juniors t-shirts on clearance for $3. I remembered seeing a refashion of one of the other shirts here http://atsecondstreet.blogspot.com/2010/02/1-t-shirt-refashion.html this week. So I picked it up and literally 10 minutes later had a dress for my peanut.

I started with this Large t-shirt (and really, it ain't that large!)
I put one of my daughters t-shirt dresses down on top to use as a guide for taking in the arms and chest.


I chalked up the line that I was going to serge on and set to work. I serged out the notch (almost looks like an upside down L) and then sewed along the seam to reinforce it.


And that's that! Sorry for the crummy shots, my daughter wasn't feeling well, so she wasn't the best model today.





make it wear it

Yeah, I'm so glad you did this too. I'm glad you understood what I did. I never know if I'm making sense. I didn't see this shirt, but I hope your girl loves hers as much as mine loves hers. Looks great.
