    My little girl's birthday is today. Hard to believe my little girl is 4 today. :cry: Thought about making her a little t-shirt dress to run around in today. She loves to dress up. ;) Can anyone help? My computer is going slow tonight and I just can't find anything.

    TIA,
    Angie

    I use to make my little girls' dresses by gathering a favorite fabric and sew on the bottom of a t shirt and applique something cute with the material on the front of the shirt.

    You didn't use elastic or anything? There are SO many different kinds out there. I am really wanting to try it but don't want to mess up and waste my fabric. LOL ;) Plus, if it looks horrible I won't let her leave the house! LOL!!!

    The second link explains it well, though I preferred to put my fabric flowers where you'd pin a corsage. I think the top looks too plain otherwise. I also did fun things with the sleeves if I used a basic T shirt. Vertical gathers with cute buttons or bows worked out well.

    I made one, it's not perfect. I didn't really have a pattern or real good directions at 2 am but she seems to like it ok. ;)

    Here's my baby on her 4th Birthday with a T-Shirt Dress. ;)
