The first step is to take the t shirt and place it on the flat surface. Turn the t shirt upside down to utilize the solid color.

Separate the top, from the bottom of the shirt.Cut along the chalk line you mark for the upper part and leave a bit extra to where you are going to sew the edges, otherwise it will be to small.Leave the neck line of course.

As the top part is obviously smaller than the bottom part so I made some pleats. After you are finished sew the edges following the pins, but of course remove the pins before sewing, just to protect from not braking the needle.

Than try it on to see if there is any need to make some extra pleats. Tan from the pieces that left over make one long to be the side ruffle item. Sew it just along the side of the dress,  neck-hole and before sewing it measure it to see if you want some extra parts or you wan to be less ruffled.

And that’s all, your are finished and ready to wear your old men T Shirt.
