I love checking out the fall color combinations. So inspiring. Teal and red, plum and brown, and most of all yellow and gray. I decided to make a dress of the later color combo when I found this adorable fabric by Michael Miller. I LOVE IT! OBSESSED! Here is what I came up with:
I started with a basic t-shirt and dyed it yellow using RIT dye. The shirt actually had a few stains so it was good to reuse something I already had in stock.
Next I cut out circles of gray felt. (Use fabric felt not craft felt).
I laid all my circles in the pattern I wanted and started pinning from the bottom. Sewing each circle down in each row, and back stitch at each end.
The shirt was cute like this but I decided to add a skirt section making it a t-shirt dress. For more information on how to add the skirt check out this tutorial.
I love making t-shirt dresses because they are so comfy. She can wear it to church or just for playing.
