Thank you everyone for your kind comments on my last post. I didn't document the steps very well at all, but hopefully these photos help a little. I would say this project is simple enough for beginners who have a sewing machine. The tees were 100% cotton so I shrunk them before cutting or sewing. To prep, cut the second tee into three components: 1. A bottom piece to attach onto the first tee for some extra length (if the tee is too short to be a dress); 2. a rectangle piece (material is thin, so I double-layered it) for the ruffle bib, and 3. thin strip for the center of the ruffles (not pictured).
Next, I sewed the bottom of tee # 2 to the hem of tee # 1. As seen in the photo below, I tried to match up the stripes exactly and sew with white thread on the white stripes.
this post for the end result.
I am feeling inspired to make more petite-friendly clothing. Please share any good DIY blogs or projects of your own in the comments : )
