“I made this to match my older daughters softball team. My younger daughter was a hit and people asked me to make them for their children.”
Introducing....the Recycled T-Shirt Halter/Tie-Back Dress ePattern! It can be worn by itself or with a short or long sleeve shirt underneath. The sizes included in the pattern are 12M to size 6 but I have used the size 5 and 6 as a shirt for older sizes.
This is a 33-page PDF tutorial with 6 pattern pages and includes ALL of my tips and tricks for sewing knit fabrics on a regular sewing machine. The dress takes approximately 2 hours from start to finish and there are many options for customizing the dress to your liking! Start saving your t-shirts, knit clothing and scrap fabric now! My daughter received so many compliments and inquiries on these dresses that I decided to make it into a comprehensive tutorial that even the most inexperienced sewer can follow! Recycling t-shirts is not only an economical way to make clothing for children, but also an easy way to make one-of-a-kind, comfortable, soft clothing that you could never find in a store!
My original PDF pattern & tutorial includes:
:: 33 pages of easy to follow step-by-step complete sewing instructions
:: 92 full color images, diagrams and drawings to demonstrate pattern specifics
:: 6 pattern pages which include separate patterns for sizes 12M, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5 & 6
:: Bloomers pattern for the 12M and 2T sizes
:: Options for halter straps, tie-back loops, or stationary straps
:: Options for customizing your dress by adding a ruffle, pockets, and racing stripes/graphics
:: 2 or 3 t-shirts or other knit clothing/fabric
:: Coordinating thread (100% polyester thread is the best for sewing knits)
:: Spray starch
:: Disappearing ink pen
:: 3-inch sewing/embroidery needle (or two 2-inch needles that you can tape together)
:: Freezer paper or other large paper for creating pattern pieces
:: Either a jersey ball point or a stretch needle (I use an orange size 11 needle for my Singer machine)
:: For bloomers: 30” of ¼” elastic
