Up-cycled T-shirt Dress

This dress is so easy to wear and so easy to make. It is aldo great because it can be made with items of clothing that we have hanging around in our wardrobes that probably we no longer wear. I used an old t-shirt that has a few holes and rips, these can be mended or left to add to character.

Firstly I then took a cotton skirt and cut the waist band off. 

Then I took the t-shirt and cut it below the armpits across the whole of the t-shirt so it was left resembling a cropped top.

Turning the t-shirt top and the skirt inside out, I placed the edges together. Simply running it through the sewing machine using a running stitch I sewed them together. I stretched the skirt to match the same length as the circumference of the t-shirt an pined them together before sewing them. 

You can 'zig zag' finish the raw edges of leave them raw.

All that is left to do it turn the dress the right way round and enjoy...
