Description

I took an oversized shirt and refashioned it by taking it in at the side seams and then making the sleeves smaller. It was easy to do and I now have a great dress to wear this summer. See the step-by-step tutorial video at www.youtube.com/fashiontoppings

Material Notes

oversized long t-shirt, sewing machine, chalk and pins.

      Thanks SassyT ! I’m addicted to this “refashion” trend. All I think about is “what can I do next?”

    Thanks Jacquipardue! I loved the material, just couldn’t live with how large it was.
