Today I will show you how to make a simple dress just by sewing a cute fabric onto a store bought t-shirt. You can use this method even if you are making a dress for grown ups. To figure out how much fabric to use for the bottom of the dress. Simply double the waistline measurement, if you wanted more volume just add more fabric.
The fabric I am using is 100% Rayon Voile very lightweight, soft and ,flowing. This was the first time I worked with this type of material. I was surprised that it was as difficult as I thought it would be. You just to be careful when cutting it since it it lightweight and it moves while cutting.
I am really pleased with the final result. It literally only took me an hour to make this. The beauty about this sewing project is you don't need patterns at all. That is why it is a perfect sewing project for beginners. These type of dresses are so trendy and they can get quite expensive. Making your own is a lot less and the garment is very unique no one else has it. I wish you saw how excited my daughter was when I showed it to her. She loves flamingos so this dress is personalized to her style, she may be 5 years old but this girl will tell me what she wants when I'm designing her clothes.
