Lavender Dress

I made another dress using a shirt for the top section.  The more I make, the easier they get.

I just dropped the waist a few inches.  I just wanted it to be airy and light.  I pumped this one out pretty quickly, and used the same method as the striped dress, only I gathered the skirt section, and didn't have the bottom flare out at all.  The gathering at the waistline was enough for me.


  1. I think you should sell some dresses like these in your shop!

  2. Your blog was just suggested to me by my s-i-l Shannon and I'm so glad she did. This dress is adorable. Can't wait to see what else you come up with.


  3. so cute! i think im going to make one. i just need to find some good fabric first

  4. I have just looked at this and your nautical dress tutorial and I just have to say Thank you.
    I have so many t-shirts that are just a bit too short in the body and now I can still wear them.
    I am so grateful for your sharing.

  5. Hi,
    I am wondering how you measure for your pleated skirt bottom. How do I know how big to make the skirt before pleating?

  6. I'm confused....where's the tutorial?

  7. Having a tough time seeing any tutorials here too. I was looking on the coral knit t-shirt dress tutorial, which there was not one, but a link in there saying that you used the same tutorial as this one, so I came to this one. Like Cygnet, I don't see any! :( I do love your beautiful work on your sewing projects though. Very stunning and such lovely colors!
