tee shirts to dress refashion

I made this dress months ago, but somehow never took any pictures of it. I found some cute printed tees at my thrift store, so I cut off the bottom of a white tee, cut strips of the tee shirts, gathered them if needed, and sewed them into a quick dress. I used the existing hem of a tee for the bottom so it was a really easy refashion! Comfy and cool for summer too.

Check out how long Sadie’s hair is getting! I keep debating on whether it needs a trim or not. Sometimes it gets a bit scraggly.

Anyway, just a quick and easy dress/refashion. Enjoy!


  1. The dress is so cute love it so much!!! ^__^

  2. Thank you for the information. Great job you have done and keep it up.

  3. stumbled upon your blog today and this idea is genius – off to find some t-shirts to hack up ๐Ÿ˜€
    greetings from Scotland

  4. That is such a good idea, and so cute!

  5. Very cute! I should do something like this for my daughter – she needs clothes this summer which is a first. She’s always had enough hand-me-downs and gifts that I really don’t *need* to sew for her. Now that it’s a need it’s somehow more fun to sew for her. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. This is so cute. I’ve made a dress like this for my daughter & it’s one of my favorites. I love the colors and mix of prints.

  7. Adorable! Thanks for the idea! I will have to keep my eyes open for cute patterned Ts!

  8. I love the combination of prints. I can’t believe you were able to get such a great combination at a thrift shop! I made one of these for each of my daughters a few months back (with tank tops on top), and they love them. As for Sadie’s hair… my 4 year old has never ever had a haircut. I say leave it for now ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Cute dress! Love the different patterns in the fabrics!

  10. i can’t believe you were able to find three cute coordinating shirts! well done.

    i feel the same way about Sutton’s hair. It has gotten very long and stringy. I have cut is short before and it is SO cute but makes it impossible to braid or pull back.
