I've been trying, and failing, to recycle our old tee-shirts into something usable. Well, I saw a rather expensive shirt at Ann Taylor which was basically a jersey knit with raw edges and a ruffle. The lightbulb went on and I went to work.
Pretty much, I cut off the hem of the neck, the sleeves, and the bottom of the tee shirt. Then I turn it inside out and take the sleeves in a bit so the shirt fits around the chest. Then sew around the edge of the neck and sleeves with elastic thread in my bobbin. For the cool ruffle, I cut a strip of the fabric from the scraps and gather it up with a basting stitch and sew it onto the front of the tee shirt. Walla.
Kacie's skirt is just the bottom of Dani's old shirt. I cut it off at the waist and put an elastic at the top.
My quest for quick and easy summer clothes is almost complete. Now I just need to figure out shorts. And big clothes; for big people.
So much to do. So much LOST to think about. I mean, really.
