Today I am posting a great summer dress refashion. I didn't take step-by-step pictures, but I'll walk you through it. It was a very easy refashion.
I started with a man's XL t-shirt (because I wanted the length) and cut off the sleeves at the seams and cut off the ribbing around the neck. You can see that here.
Here is a closeup of the neckline. I just cut the ribbing off.
I then just stitched about 1/8" around the armholes and the neckline.
Because the t-shirt was a little short in length, I went through my scrap pile and found this cute denim ruffle that I had taken off one of my daughter's dresses. It was the perfect size to fit at the bottom of the t-shirt. I sewed the ruffle on just under the hem of the t-shirt.
Here is a close-up. I sewed just below the original hem seam.
To jazz the dress up a little, I made a couple of flowers out of some scrap denim and sewed them on with some spare buttons. The flowers were the perfect finishing touch!
Throw on a pair of cute flip flops or sandals and you're ready to go out in style!
