Fun Dresses

Yesterday, I finished dresses for Rachel and Sarah.  

I found this darling Mary Englebreit material at the fabric outlet for $3.50 a yard and bought quite a bit thinking I would make jumpers for them out of it.  

But one day while shopping at Target, I saw these cute t-shirts that were very good price and they go with the fabric beautifully!

I remembered a dress my sister in law made for my niece Jill many years ago.  Basically you make a skirt gather it at the waist and attach it to the t-shirt!  These are soft, comfy dresses to run around and play in, or to sleep in.  

They like them and so do I.  I may try this again and make a few changes in how I do it, but it was fun and it is great to see the finished result.


  1. Oh, they do look comfy!

  3. I've made MANY dresses like this for my daughters in the past. A polo style shirt works well, too.
