Old T-Shirts...New Dress

It's that time of year again for me, when I get that back to school fever, and I have to organize everything.
Linen closet...check.
Dresser...check.
Classroom....uh...getting there.

I did manage to make a pile of clothes to be donated, but I pulled some of the tank tops out to create a new dress for my 4 year old daughter.
I'll show you what I did....

Big pile of clothes.

Find some colors that you like together, or just wing it, and cut about 3 or 4 inches off the bottom of each.

Snip, Snip.


I pinned each strip together to make a big striped tube, but I let the edges of the fabric show. I wanted it to be a bit ruffle-y.

Then I found a T-shirt of my daughter's and cut off the bottom. (I could turn that bottom scrap into a headband or something...)

T-Shirt CHOP!

I sewed the tube of fabric to the T-Shirt, and there you have it! The bottom shirt already had a hem. Oh Yeah! 

Dramatic poses only please!

Action!

Take 3.

I'm spent!
