Ever since I saw the Starboard bow dress at shabby apple, I knew I could make one myself since I had a brown t-shirt I no longer wore (it was to short).
Well, I gave it my best shot.
Close enough, don't you think?
For more pictures and to see how I made it, read on :
Here is what I started with
-brown t shirt
-3 yards white fabric
First take the underskirt and sew the edges together and hem it.
Pull the strings and ruffle:
You need to ruffle it until it is the same length as the underskirt all the way around
Then stitch down the edges (right sides together)
Here is the first one attached:
Next mark where the rest of the ruffles go:
Then attach the rest of the ruffles:
Next measure your waist and cut your elastic:
Sew your elastic onto the skirt (stretch the elastic)
Next try on the shirt and mark with a pin where you want the skirt to start:
Cut the shirt
Next pin your shirt to your skirt (right sides together)
Sew the shirt and skirt together
Iron down the ruffles (so you don't look like a muffin ;) )
