Another t-shirt to kids dress - Clothes upcycling challenge day 25

Today's upcycle is another t-shirt dress, this time for my elder daughter. 

I used this old singlet of my husbands for the main body of the dress..

This old, too-small leggings from my younger daughter for the trims and straps..

And this too-small t-shirt for the ruffles..

To make a nice comfy and colourful dress!

With just a plain back!

I've almost used up all the old clothes now - and having learnt lots about clothes making along the way, I'm itching to start making some clothes with fresh fabric!!  But that will have to wait till next month!  Still 6 more days to go - got to finish this challenge and empty that box!!


  1. Adorable!! I love the added ruffles

  2. I have a bag of clothes in the hallway waiting to go on a charity run. Every post I see of yours inspires me that little bit more to move it to the sewing room!

  3. Whee! That dress is so much fun!!!

    patience, patience, you can make it to the end - all this upcycling has stretched your creativity, I know. Loving this series, Jill!

  4. I love the way you used the leggings. so dang creative!!

  5. I love it! I think I see one in my girl's future!
