A New Dress for Ashlyn

I made this dress in 40 minutes flat from one of Ashlyn's t-shirts from last year and a scrap of fabric from our stash.  I got the idea from another mom (thanks Anna) and definitely see more of these in our future.  It was super easy!   I simply stitched a seam down the back of the skirt fabric and gathered the top edge.  Then I eased the gathered edge around the hem of the t-shirt, pinned, stitched, and finally hemmed the skirt.  VIOLA! A new dress :O)  Just the kind of project that makes everyone happy.


  1. Oh Heather, the t-shirt dresses are just wonderful to wear in the summer. And yes, they are so easy to make :~)

    Ashlyn looks just lovely in that dress :)



  2. What a fantastic idea and she looks lovely. You are so clever. My goodness she looks like her father!
