Another t-shirt dress

Back when it was still hot outside, I made this t-shirt dress that I neglected to post. So here it is. I started with two-shirts - a lovely, well-fitting ladies shirt and a huge blue men's t-shirt.

I loved the ruched sleeves of the gray shirt, but the hole-y bottom hem had to go. I made a skirt out of the men's shirt by cutting it out like so.

I sewed it along the side seams into more of an a-line shape. I sewed it with right sides together until I got to about 3 inches from the top edge. Then I flipped it right-side out and sewed the rest of the seam with the wrong sides together. This made it so that I could fold down the top few inches and have a waist-band of sorts on the dress. I joined the skirt to the shirt like so.

And here is how it looks with the waistband folded down.

Pretty comfy. Thanks for reading.

T-shirts are one of my favorite things to refashion. Nice work on yours.

I like the way you did the waistband.
