How to make a Supergirl dress from a T-shirt11:15 am
the sewjo has been severely lacking over here, but it wasn't until I went away on a much deserved beach vacation that i realised how useful it is to have all my fabric and sewing machines within reach! So when i returned I cranked out a few things, this request by Eddie being one of them!
I love that she's old enough now to make her own decisions about what she wants to wear, what she would like me to make. She insisted on a Supergirl outfit, for quite some time now, and so I pulled out a Superman t-shirt I'd got from the op-shop years ago and got to work! I love doing t-shirt surgeries, I love seeing how much of the original t-shirt I can use and basically I love upcycling clothing!
How cute is this? She was standing on a chair in front of the fan trying to make her cape blow out behind her.
I used the shorts pattern that comes with the Clara by Violette Field Threads, and with the back piece of the original t-shirt I managed to eke out enough for some shorts to go underneath the dress! Some yellow stretch was used for the waistband - I really love how these turned out.
