I made this!

#13 on my list.... DONE!I made a dress from an old fitted t-shirt, 1 yard of fabric, and some elastic. It took about 3 hours total and most of that was figuring out exactly how to do it. But in the end it was really, really easy.

It's just the teeniest bit wonky, but nobody has to know about that (besides you, dear reader). It's comfy and cool. And I've been hoarding that blue floral forever. I'm so glad I finally used it. And I bought some pretty black & white gingham and blue & white stripe seersucker to make more cute dresses! All I need is a few fitted tee's that I don't plan on using otherwise.

What's that? You're asking me about a pattern? Yeeeeeahhhh... about that..... this was copied from an Old Navy dress I bought a couple of weeks ago/out of my head. If you really want to know how I did it, just ask. Otherwise I'm not going to bother posting instructions here.

Later this week I'll share before & after shots of a (now) super cute mirror I found at Goodwill last week. Hope you had a great weekend!

I am in awe of people who can sew... especially considering the fact that you just whipped this up. Very cute dress. Kudos!
