Description

I am walking disaster. I spend my time making stupid things. Last of all? I decided to iron one of my tanks, one made of synthetic jersey. It was just after I ironed a cotton shirt, the iron was way too hot and I melted my tank!

I was so pissed off at first. And then I found a way to be happy again: I made this bicolor dress with what was still in good condition of my tank and the fabric remaining from my previous project :http://www.burdastyle.com/projects/my-favourite-tees-little-brother/.

This dress is easy to make, you’ll see if you try the pattern! Instructions are available in English and in French.

    Oh, it’s just like the dresses I made for my girls last year … You can go to my studio and see where three dresses, two singlet and one shirt.

    Great save! What a cute dress! (If you have a clothes dryer, it makes a great “iron”. Just throw the wrinkled clothes in with a damp towel.)
