I couldn't make myself a cute t-shirt for the Royal's game without making my daughter something too! I found this old t-shirt and figured I could do something to it. I used a shirt of my daughters and cut out that shape, removing the sleeves and collar. I made it a little bit longer since I wanted hers to be a dress. I sewed up the sides and the top of the shoulders.
I used the strip I cut off from the bottom of the original t-shirt to make a ruffle. I then cut it to the length I wanted after trying it on my daughter. I used the original sleeves to make little sleeves. I cut out the shape you see to the right. I made it longer than I needed so that I could ruffle it.
I sewed the short ends together to form the sleeve and used a "gathering" thread to ruffle it up to the same size as the armhole in the dress. I then sewed them in!
Here's my baby in her new dress! She was excited to go to the game and show it off. I wore my reconstructed t-shirt as well and we really enjoyed the fireworks together!
