For my third project for the Summer of No Pants, I decided to make a t-shirt dress. I wanted something that would go together a lot easier and faster than the last project I did. I used a striped t-shirt and a green sheet for this dress. I shortened the sleeves on the shirt a little bit and cut it off at the place where I wanted the skirt to attach. I measured the bottom of the shirt and doubled that measurement for the waist of the skirt front and back pieces, and cut out those pieces in an A-line shape. Then I cut out some pockets, sewed the pockets and skirt together, gathered the top of the skirt, sewed it to the top, and made a sash. Cute, quick, and comfortable dress!
UPDATE: The neck on this dress was too high for my taste...it didn't look right and it bothered me. I felt like I was choking! So I made some bias tape from what I had left of the green sheet, cut down the neckline, and finished it with the bias tape. I also added bias tape to the sleeve edges. Here's the result:
