T-Shirt Dress and Headbands

T-Shirt Dress and Headbands

Saw this tutorial via for making a baby dress out of an old t-shirt. I have not attempted to sew any articles of clothing since I was about 10 years old and ended up sobbing over the sewing machine at my lopsided attempt at PJ pants. But it's been 15 years since then, so I was willing to give it another go. I loved the little crushed flowers on this t-shirt dress so I merged the two patterns. You can find the tutorial for the braided headband {here}. I even stuck a little crushed flower on the headband. Oh what endless possibilities! Perfect for easy summer play attire.

I just hemmed the sleeves of the little blue dress by hand, without making any binding.

This cute little pink and blue stripped dress is a bit too big for her right now, but she will keep growing, I'm sure! I made binding for the bottom and the sleeves and it gave them a little flare. Also put in some ties for an easy sash. The sweet pleats on the front were part of the original T-shirt.
