Refashion Month

refashion month-old girl t-shirts to 18" doll tank tops
 Magda from House of Estrela is hosting a Refashion Month during July. Today it's my turn to share my refashion...
refashion month-old girl t-shirts
 This refashion is super quick and 100% FREE! Everyone loves free, right? So first of all, I grabbed some of my daughter's old t-shirts. They were too small, had stains, had holes, but the majority of the fabric was still in pretty good condition. I printed out this free 18" doll t-shirt pattern and placed the pattern pieces at the bottom of the original t-shirts taking advantage of the original hem saving me a step in sewing. I eliminated the sleeves and made tank tops which is mentioned in the instructions. And that's it! It goes to show you just how easy refashioning can be.
