T-shirt Halter – a Sewing Project

15 June

I just put together another free sewing PDF tutorial.  It’s a super-quick and super-cute refashion from an old tee.  It has a comfy and flowy body, with a sweet shape on top – a hybrid halter-top shelf-dress of sorts.

I have a 14-year old boy who is growing like a weed right now, so a ton of his t-shirts no longer fit.  I also have a little girl that I love to sew for.  I started cutting up a few of his tees, playing around to see if I could come up with a dress for my girl.  This is what I came up with.

The t-shirt I used was a well-worn adult size small.  It fits my size 5 girl just fine.

The bottom hem and a little portion under the arm are unfinished – which is just fine for cotton knit.  It slightly curls up, soft and comfy with no worries of fraying.

Isn’t the back stinkin’ cute?  It could be worn as a summer dress with some short leggings, or a swimsuit cover-up.

The last page of the PDF includes some tweaks to make a version for an 18″ doll.  Don’t miss it!

Grab the free T-Shirt Halter PDF and have some fun cutting up some old t-shirts.  The PDF is a 5-page document with photos and simple instructions.  Hope you enjoy it!

If you make one, link up your project online – I’d love to see what you make!
