Having been inspired by a lime and black revamped dress made from two Lyme Disease CALDA charity t-shirts by VictoriousVixen, I wanted to give my own t-shirt dress a try.
VictoriousVixen's Revamped T-Shirt Dress
A few weeks ago I purchased a bright pink skirt picked from an op shop's 50c rack, originally chosen for its fabric as my plan was to make decorations from it. However, I thrifted a billabong t-shirt for $2 this week - black with a bright palm tree fluro print; a match with the fabric from my 50c skirt! The idea in my head was to create a simple dress stitching both the t-shirt and skirt together. I was able to do just that during a sewing tution with Hayley at
Hayley's advice was to cut off the top of the skirt, and bottom of the t-shirt, and stitch some elastic to the waist line. To be fair, Hayley did the sewing, and showed me how to do this in the future, but my idea turned out cool, eh? It is far too cold to model my new dress today, but I'll do so when the weather warms up.
