Altered t-shirt



Well, I was at Costco a while back and bought a t-shirt that I LOVED but, when I got home and put it on, I hated the really long, fitted style. The top part fit fine but I don't want something hugging my tummy! So, I decided to cut it off and make an empire waist dress from it! With just a little fabric and a couple of hours, I now I have new loose fitting and comfy dress! To give a bit of more finished look, I added a band over the seam where the two were sewn together. I'm happy with the outcome and think I'll be making more! It's so comfortable!

Tomorrow night is "Meet the Artists" opening night for Art Unraveled! I'm so excited. I still haven't packed up my supplies for my first class Monday so I better get a firecracker under my rear end!

Darling little dress! I made one many years ago for my niece - used a t-shirt but made it long-waisted - she loved that dress!
hugs,
