Sale rack meets junk T in this upcycle project!
I had a really soft comfortable T shirt (which came from Chico's, so it was not cheap either) that I was wearing during a crafting session one day. Needless to say I ruined the shirt by getting some glue on it.
The glue spots look really small in the picture, but I always felt self-conscious wearing it. I decided to make a dress out of it when I saw a plain black children's maxi on a sale rack at Target. The maxi is made of a very soft knit with lycra, and is black.
After removing the elastic waistband, the cropped top and the skirt lined up PERFECTLY! I think they were meant to be together! The only problem was getting slippery knits to cooperate and play along. I decided to use dryer sheets as a stabilizer (what?). First I cut the sheets into strips.
Then, I placed the strips under my work so that the knit was not touching the feed dogs.
When the dress was completed, I clipped away the dryer sheet. Here's the finished dress! I hope you like it, and I hope you let me know what you are working on!
