T-shirt dress

There are t-shirt refashions all over the place right now.  If you'd like to attempt this simple sewing activity, there is a great tutorial over at Just Deanna.

I attempted a refashion using the same fabric I used for my Mother's day Onesie dress.  This time it's 5T, for a friend - after being asked to make these for my son's class' pre-school graduation.  (More about that later!)

My assessment of my first attempt? Not bad! So, I thought I'd share.  I just used a simple boys white undershirt. The entire thing cost me less than $5.00, including skirt fabric. Easy &  inexpensive, perfect!

That came out really cute. :) I have yet to attempt the t-shirt dresses but hope to do some sewing this summer to save money. :)
