Three hours tee shirt

Added Mar 21, 2012

Madrid, Spain






I had a dress, a bit old fashioned, as I didn’t wear it, it was almost new. And I had three spare hours. That is the result.

Basically I ustitched the upper part of the dress, then I tried it on and marked where I would like the shoulders to be in order to mark the armhole, the upper side would be the fluffy collar. Then I unstitched 16 cm for the armholes. I added the collar and sewed the armholes (I profited the side seams and the ending).

I hope you’ve understood the idea, otherwise I can only try to provide instructions in Spanish ;-))

Material Notes

Old dress A – shaped.




Garment Type

      Me alegro. Anímate, cuando es algo viejo da menos pena, y bueno como yo soy una prisillas me encanta improvisar.

      A ver si en español lo entiendes mejor. Era un vestido combinación (o sea que la falda empezaba por debajo del pecho):
      1 Quité la parte del pecho
      2 Me lo probé tal cual quedaba como una capa
      3 Así delante del espejo fui mirando cuanto cuello quería dejar
      4 Marqué el punto a partir del cual iban las sisas
      5 Rematé las sisas
      6 Hice el bies del cuello con la parte del pecho
      ¿Ahora sí? ;-))
