So I had an old Mooks tee that was a tad too small and short to look nice on me, so I upcycled it to a tee dress for my daughter :)

  • How to sew a t-shirt dress. Tee Dress For Kids - Step 1
    Step 1

    First measure around your models chest/waist and add 2cm.Divide this total measurement in half and you know how wide to make the top 2 pieces. Next measure the height of the top bit. Cut out 2x rectangles according to measurement (make sure you get the logo on it if you have one). Cut out 2 big rectangles for the skirt bit, make sure they're a bit bigger than the first bits you cut out.
