Some t-shirts really should be dresses don’t you think? I loved the pattern on this shirt, but it just didn’t fit quite right, so I sacrificed it:)
I love love love the versatility of this outfit. It fits forever- an adorable dress or swing top. And… it works for summer and fall- just throw on a t-shirt under to make it a cute jumper. Of course you need baby legs too (we’ll learn those next time)
- Bottom 1/2 of a t-shirt
- Matching knit fabric- we’ll use this for embellishing and the baby legs tutorial
- Coordinating ribbon
1. Cut the bottom off your t-shirt. Ok- so mine already had a casing and I just threaded some elastic through it. But… yours probably won’t so just fold the top over 1/2″ish and topstitch it down, leaving a little opening to thread the elastic through. Since we’re working with knits it won’t fray, so don’t worry about finishing off edges- LOVE that about knits don’t you??
Measure your baby or toddler just below the armpits and make your elastic that same size. This makes an adorable baby dress or a toddler swing top.
2. Now for a little flower- optional, but I think it really adds something. Cut out 4 or more skewampish circles in varying sizes.
Perfect little outfit for lounging around in the grass
