A while ago I posted about an upcycle project of questionable outcome, a t-shirt of mine that I had hacked the arms off of and turned into a dress for Clementine. Here’s an update so you can see how it looks on her. It’s definitely been demoted to the “nighty” category of her clothing, but on her it’s not bad. Neckline a little wonky, but it is what it is.
Cute actually, but I have to be honest here, it’s hard to find something she isn’t cute in, you know?
Worth a revisit with better elastic thread and another t-shirt perhaps. You can see the basic method I used on the original post. And from the Let’s-Defeat-Shirring-Problems-Once-And-For-All Department: commenter Ramona recently left a link to her blog where she ran a little experiment on elastic thread and hypothesizes that the elastic thread they’ve been selling at Joann recently is to blame for problems with shirring, so I ordered some of this stuff that comes on the giant cone. Will report back once I’ve tried it. Has anyone else noticed that their elastic thread isn’t working as well as it used to?
