Pattern Description:

--- PLEASE NOTE: this is a FREE tutorial from my website. You are welcome to check out this pattern and the instructions on my website by following the link above (right underneath the headline). For your convenience I decided to offer the complete tutorial as a PDF for download, if you prefer to have everything in one structured document.---

Learn how to easily turn an xxl-shirt into a cute and stylish dress! This project is also budget-friendly since you hardly need any extra materials! No matter if you go for the simple version or decide to embellish the sleeves and add a cute belt to your dress - this tutorial will guide you through all the steps. There is also an option to lengthen the skirt with cotton fabric if you need a few extra inches! Happy sewing :)
I recommend using a serger when working with knit fabrics but the stretch stitch of your regular sewing machine will also do the job.

The pdf file comes with 7 pages of instructions and 21 color photographs.
