I started making T-shirt dresses for the girls. It’s been a frustrating process for something I thought would be very easy. Several things I’ve learned are: 1) you must be careful about they type of knit T-shirt you pick out to use for one of these. If you get one that’s too stretchy it won’t look good. 2) you must cut off the bottom of the shirt to where you’d like the skirt to attach to the shirt before you sew it! I know you will want to save all that extra fabric “just in case” but forget it, just save yourself the headache and cut it off. Your seam line will be nice and straight instead of wavy. And use a rotary cutter, not scissors. 3) use a serger or if you don’t have one (like me) use a walking foot AKA even-feed foot. If you don’t have a serger make sure you zigzag the edges! I hand embellished these shirts for the girls. Aren’t they so cute!?
