Clumsy title aside, this dress is comfortable, if a bit short. I used the last of my t-shirts to see if I could make a t-shirt dress. At first, I added lace to make the length more comfortable for me, but of course, that messed up where the curves fall, as you can see in the left-hand picture. The dress in the right-hand picture fits better, but I do wish it were longer. The pieces of lace are too short for me to add them to them bottom of the hem. I really prefer my dress hems to hit mid-knee, or at highest, right above the knee. I'll keep this dress through the summer and see if I wear it. I can always shorten it to a shirt and now I know that I can buy fabric and make a dress that will be comfortable and fit nicely, which was the primary objective of the project.
Hi! I live in Virginia. My mom taught me to sew. I think I started at 4 or 5 by sewing buttons onto a handkerchief, but don't trust my memory. That was a long time ago. As a teenager, I was more interested in completing projects than learning good sewing techniques. Now, I am teaching myself some things I missed. My sewing interests are in learning to make alterations to and draft patterns to fit my petite 4'11" tall, 32" chest, 45" hip body.
