My final vacation refashion...I think. I love finding over-sized cotton t's at the goodwill! This lovely super soft black one was found a few weeks back and knew I could do something amazing with it!
I swear I'm wearing shorts in this photo! Little black dresses are among my favorite wardrobe pieces, so that's what I set out to make! This was a dream find I love the mock neck and the sleeves will add extra fabric for me to work with.
I dissasembled the sleeves and ripped the side seams out of the t-shirt. Then I laid my favorite swing dress over it for a pattern.
I'm sorry it is hard to see as they are both black but you get the idea! I traced around the arm holes and down a bit to get the shape of the sides. I decided to make this slightly more unique than a typical swing dress. This was done by not trimming the curve of the shoulders and shaping the length into a triangle. Then sewing them on either side of the dress.
Overall I am quite happy with how this turned out! The only changes I may do are to take off a little more at top of the arm hole to give it a better shoulder line. Also it may be a bit short, but I will always wear shorts under it so I will always be covered! It could work belted or not, but I think I may like it better belted than hanging free.
