DIY ~ LOVELY T-Shirt Dress

I am soooooo pumped about the way this dress turned out!
I have wanted to make myself some sort of dress, romper, tunic type thing with it but was too scared I wouldn't be able to do it!
But I did!
And it fits!
And looks great!
I even wore it on a date night with Tally :)

First take a top you love, fold it in half and trace it onto a folded newspaper or tissue.
I extended the length of my tshirt so mine would be more like a dress or tunic.

Cut it out leaving an extra inch all the way around for seam allowences.
Now you have a pattern for free :)

Pin your pattern onto your fabric, double thickness.
Cut out with pinking sheers.

Now you have two pieces.
Sew down each side  and the top of the shoulders leaving the arm holes and neck open.
Iron your seams.

Fold your front piece in half and cut a vneck so that the point in an inch ABOVE where the bottom of your armpits land.

Fold and iron your neck and sleeve seams and pin in place.
Sew all around.
Do your hem as well.

 Done and done! :)
Super cute eh?
