Almost forgot to photograph this one and post. This is a size 5 with a matching hat. I am going to be charging $65 for the dresses that are non-T-shirt dresses as they take several hours to make and the fabric is about $25. Not a lot of room for profit.
Made these two today in size 12 Month and 3T that are similar, but a little different. Another fun day sewing in my studio. Love big prints on little girls.
Holly is five and when I saw this fabric, thought it could make another “fast & Furious” T-shirt dress. I buy the T-0shirts at Walmart for under $5.00 and the fabric where ever I can find it. This fabric is from Walmart and it took about a yard at $3.00 a yard, so here is a way to make a really fun little dress for literally pennies. I am going to start making sun hats to match the dresses. I made a couple yesterday to match dresses I made in the past and they were so easy, I thought I would make more. Maybe I should try to think of a way to market these, so I actually make a little money. For now I am just having a great time sewing again after not for over 40 years.
This is another one of my “Fast & Furious” dresses. I had fabric left over from a Fund Raiser I helped on for the Boys & Girls Club, and thought it might be interpreted into a cute T-shirt dress. I am starting to think taking a larger piece and adding it to the top of the dress is more fun than something small. Most people just add a small appliqué to the bodice and it looks a little floaty, so I thought I would try something slightly different. I loved Paris and hope to go back again soon.

This dress cost about $4.00 a piece to make and with a little creative energy are fun. the T-shirts were on on sale at Wally World and the fabric was about $2.00 a yard. It literally takes no time and there you have a play dress, that doesn’t take much time or energy and doesn’t cost much either. Perfect for preschool or a carefree day.
My granddaughter loves My Little Pony and would watch it over and over and over if I let her. The VW Bus was mostly for me, as I just loved the print.
Girls just like to have fun, no matter what the age!!
