Most days my husband comes home and asks me what I did that day. He doesn't say it like "man, look at this place...what DID you do all day?" way, he does it in more of a "I know the things you do around the house can go overlooked, so I want to make sure I appreciate what you did do" way. So while I was going down the list (three loads of laundry, swept the floors...), I also mentioned that I made a dress out of a pillowcase and an old tank top. After I said it, it sort of sounded like something Macgyver would have said if he were crafty! Don't you think?Anyway, I started out with a Ralph Lauren pillowcase that was in the free box at a garage sale, and a Hollister tank top, I picked up for 50 cents.
I didn't take step by step pictures for a tutorial this time. So sorry! If you sew though, it's pretty easy to figure it out. I used the pillowcases natural opening as the hem and cut the bottom off of the shirt and the pillowcase. I even made a belt from what I had leftover from the pillowcase. After I sewed the two pieces together, I used elastic thread in my bobbin and did four rows of shirring at the waist.
I think it turned out really cute...my husband does not. What do you think?
I'm linking up to a few of these parties
