While recently reading one of my current favourite blogs MADE, I read about a sewing group blog called Presser Foot. As their blog says, they 'invite sewers from everywhere to unite on common projects'. Their current project is something I have been looking at adoringly on MADE since I first saw it.... The Shirt Dress. Dana from MADE has transformed a man's shirt into a dress for her 3 year old girl and then created a tutorial on how to make it. I loved the idea of Presser Foot so I have joined in and added a Shirt Dress to my project list.
Yesterday I headed down to the local Op Shop and found my shirt. I'm going to make the dress for my niece who is 4 and because it's almost Winter, I decided on a demin shirt which will make a better Winter dress... I hope this still works OK...
So here's the shirt.... stay tuned for what happens next!
PS... I nervously sent my first swap goodies to Snailblazer on Wednesday. Because it's a surprise until you get your swap package, I can't tell you what I made... but here's a sneak peak.
