In keeping with this month’s Refashioning 101: The 2 for 1 Upcycle theme I’ve come up with an adorable quick fix for a too small dress + a simple trick for camouflaging unwanted prints!
Here’s how to create a darling dress refashion AND get rid of an annoying t-shirt graphic! (this tutorial also works brilliantly on grown-up gear!)
Grab a too small dress, a t-shirt with a silly print and an embroidered doily (or piece of coordinating fabric) large enough to cover the t-shirt graphic.
Pin the doily over the t-shirt print.
Stitch it on, et voila! No more silly print!
Chop the skirt off of the dress.
Pop the t-shirt over the skirt with right sides facing and the t-shirt hem lined up with the raw edge of the skirt.
Trim off any excess fabric, flip right side out and zigzag over the outside seam for extra strength if desired.
Pretty darn sweet, eh? (+ the dress is now even a wee bit too big which means a few extra months of wear! Yay!)
But what about the top of the dress?
A quick hem and it’s now a quirky cropped blouse perfect for throwing over a t-shirt!
