SUMMER WAS MADE FOR BLACK GIRLS: A TRY-ON HAUL
Thank you for your thoughtful comments and suggestions on how to make it even better! To date nearly 30, people have dropped in to take a look at it. That is pretty awesome! T-shirt dresses are so easy to make that even a person with very little experience can sew a cute dress. If you already know how to sew you might want to make several. First you need to gather up your materials. It is for that reason I cut the lower portion of the t-shirt off so that the fabric falls loosely from above the tummy. Cutting the tee will make the t-shirt dress look more like a dress and less like a t-shirt with a skirt sewn on the bottom of it. I know you hate to cut off a perfectly good t-shirt but it will be worth it and you will be able to use the bottom of the tee for a headband or braided bracelet. Trust me on this one. After we finish it up you can embellish it anyway that you like. Okay enough chit-chat from me let's move on. Do not use solid white or pastels or sheer fabrics like voile or gauze that you can see thru. If you aren't sure you should probably leave it on the shelf and choose something else. I think I can safely say that all little girls like bright colors and playful prints. Your top should look like this. One of the things that really bugs me about t-shirt dresses is how the t-shirt stretches when the skirt is attached. Lay one of the strip of the Pelon across the shirt right above the pins that you used to mark where you are going to cut. Now flip the t-shirt over and do it again on that side. This is the scary part You're going to feel like you cut it too short but it won't be. Does it look like this? Trim the ends of the interfacing if needed and sew along the side seams and reinforce with a zig-zag stitch. All sizes use the full width of the fabric…selvage to selvage. Make sure if you have a printed selvage like mine that the seam is deep enough to hide it. You want to sew just over far enough that the white edges are hidden. Don't worry about the length of your fabric we are going to hem it later. In this tutorial you are going to put the seam on the side so that the front and back of the dress appear seamless. Years ago we might have put the seam down the back so that it could button or a zipper sewn in but not today. The skirt will appear to be virtually seamless with the seam on the side under the arm. I promise you will be thrilled with the results when you finish. So let's lay the seamed skirt flat on the table. Place a pin on the side opposite the seam to mark the other half of the dress. Then two other pins go in the middle of the front and back. I measured with a tape but you can fold it in half if that is easier. Basically you want to mark both sides and the center front and the center back. The dress is now marked on both sides and center back and front. Now the magic begins. Lay the dress on the table with the pins and raw edges at the top. Start in the center and pinch pleat from the center toward the side seam, like this. All of the pleats move away from the center. This is one half of my front. Go ahead and pleat all around the top starting in the center and pleating toward the side seam. You be able to put in 3 or 4 and the 4th one might be a little skimpy but that's okay keep going. When you are finished pleating it will look like this. Congratulations you just finished the most difficult part of the dress! Why pleats rather than gathering you might wonder. Pleats are faster to put in and lay flatter for shipping, which is a good thing when you are packing hundreds of dresses. Sew all the way around pressing the pleats down as you sew over them. Remember that little piece of stabilizer that we ironed in at the beginning of this tutorial? This is going to keep your knit shirt top from stretching when you sew around. Clip all the threads and turn the dress right side out. Start at the side seam and go all the way around. My t-shirt is a size So using the pillowcase dress length chart below measure down the front from the center of the arm opening to the hem.
