The perfect t-shirt dress

I drafted the pattern as a basic shirt and made it long enough to be a dress and brought in the waist so it would hug my body. This took me all of an hour this morning while I was watching tv and eating breakfast. Very simple to make and easy to wear, I love it! I am going to have to make more in tons of different lengths and fabrics.

      I drafted the sleeves, then I sewed them into tubes and last to the body. You need to sew the front and back of the body first too. I dont know if thats helpful enough, let me know if you have any more questions :)
