With the summer heat kicking into high gear, I have been dying to create this simple, basic, t-shirt meets shift dress look. It is the perfect piece to add variety to my summer wardrobe This dress has been on my mental "to do" list for quite some time, and I must say, it's everything I've imagined it would be.
Click through below for the tutorial...
- Basic tee. I used my favorite tee ever. (I own at least 7 of these tops and rotate them regularly)
- 1 1/2 yards of knit fabric. (My favorite place to get knits online is here. Most everything in this jersey knit section should work great this dress. However, I would stay away from the tissue, burnout, and slub knits, as they are too see-through to be worn as a dress. One other word of advice; if you see a fabric you like, jump on it as soon as you can, because fabric does tend to sell out quickly.)
- Pattern/tracing paper (optional but recommended)
- Matching thread
- Double needle (optional)
I've made 5 of these so far. I can't help myself! They are comfy, easy to pull on, and super versatile. I can't wait to show you how I style the others!
