Justine from Sew Country Chick shares a tutorial for making a little girl’s Valentine dress out of a man’s t-shirt. It has a loose fit bodice, and elastic waist, and a gathered skirt. She stenciled the word “Love” across the bodice and around the hem to give it a Valentine theme. For an older girl, I think you could make this work with two matching t-shirts – one for the bodice and one for the skirt. Her tutorial is part of the Refashion Month series at House of Estrela. Go to Sew Country Chick for the tute.
