Ladies, do you have tons of women’s tees that you absolutely love but just don’t quite fit into anymore? Or maybe you’ve just retired the shirt but have a hard time parting with it? Make it into a dress for that special little girl in your life! With just a few adjustments, you can turn your women’s T into a dress or flowy top for your toddler. Just add elastic (you’ll need a sewing machine or a friend who has one) to the waist and cut the sleeves off to a racerback for the most basic adjustment. Cutting the sleeves off will make the armhole huge for a kid, so I suggest that a fitted shirt/tank top/onesie in a contrast color go underneath to create a layered look.
Below, you’ll see that I have a thing for Hello Kitty™. You’ll also see the before and after of two variations of what I’ve described above.
