Upcycle: T-shirts to Summer vest tutorial

In my last visit to Target I found a few very cool and super cheap items, I already showed you what I did with this dress. So now I wanted to show what I did with two T-shirts, I also used a little piece of lace for the back, but you don’t need to use it if you don’t like lace. I really liked that the T-shirts were very soft and a thin material, thinner than normal cotton T-shirts. They cost me $3.00 each and both were XL. I am a Medium in shirts so I would recommend to use shirts two sizes bigger than what you normally wear so they are long enough and you end up with a pretty and full bottom.

How to make Glittens (fingerless glove-mittens) My Purple dress.

Purple is my favorite color, that’s why it was one of the main colors of our wedding (along with green, Ken’s favorite color).

My Purple dress

But after the wedding and for longer than a year I could not even look at purple, I was so sick of it! Happily I am finally detoxing from purple =] So my first step to officially show my re-born love for that color, is to finally wear it again. I decided to make a dress for Ken’s cousin wedding last weekend and as usual I had to share it with all of you. I had that purple fabric way before our wedding – I actually brought it from Chile – and yes, if you are wondering, did she really move to the California with a bunch of fabric? New Sewing Patterns.
