DIY: T-Shirt Flower Dress Technically this isn't a new DIY since this dress was one of the first things that I ever posted on this little blog when my Nikon and I were just getting to know each other, (;)) but I never put up the entire tutorial! In the beginning of my blog days, I used to post all of my tutorials over on Cut Out + Keep, one of my favorite crafting communities. (By the way, Cut Out + Keep just celebrated their 100,000th member! Holy cow that's a lot of crafters. This dress is special to me in many ways because it was my first big blog project, I wore it in a trashion show, and holy Moses it took me forever to make.

La jupe shirt | Coudre Like My Mom July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana, I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. The next day, during the mystery workshop at Whipstitch, we were encouraged to use thrifted tees. I’m devastatingly terrified of knits so I steered clear and made my (award winning) cotton fabric dress. I developed an idea in my head I thought just might be crazy enough to work. The Hubs thought I was a little crazy when I explained my idea to him. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do! The shirt skirt perfect for summertime. I wore the green and white one to Sofie’s birthday party. I had 2 women in Walmart stop me to tell me how comfy my skirt looked and when I told them how I made it, they demanded I call Rachael Ray immediately! The process is so easy. I do my shopping at Goodwill for 1 reason. So, get your super cheap thrifted shirt. Now, I break a rule of shirring. And that’s it!
