T-Shirt Dress {Easy Sewing Tutorial}

In almost any tourist trap they have cheap t-shirts.

I don’t usually wear cheap t-shirts around, but fashioned as a skirt or t-shirt dress I might! (See Also: T-Shirt to Skirt)

Materials:
T-shirt 2-3 Sizes Larger than you wear
T-shirt that fits perfectly (Just for the pattern!)
Matching Thread

Directions:
Fold both t-shirts in half. Lay the small pattern t-shirt an inch from the center. This will account for seam allowance. Cut the bottom shirt along the lines of the top shirt.

Turn the t-shirt inside out, and pin the sides together. The best for sewing these sides is a serger, but using a zig-zag stitch on a regular sewing machine will work just as well. Sew the sides of the t-shirt dress. Do not sew the arm holes closed.

The last thing is to finish the sleeves. Fold the edges over twice, and press them. Use a long straight stitch or a zig-zag stitch to hem the arm holes.

That’s it! It took me longer to write this post about how to do this than it did for me to make each of these t-shirt dresses, and I love them!

I did go back to the black one and made it into tank top instead, because it is going to start getting hot in Arizona!
