Today I’m part of a book tour for a new book called Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses by Sweet Seams. It is a really great book to have on hand if you sew as it’s filled with more than 25 easy, pattern-free designs for dresses that use a simple t-shirt or tank top to create them! The dresses inside this book fit the size range of 2T-8 years old which makes it a good book to own as you’ll get a lot of use out of it you happen to have or know of a little girl!
There are so many cute dresses in this book, some are super easy and will take you 30 minutes to finish and others you’ll need to put in a little more time, but none of them are at all overly-complicated. This book is perfect for a beginner sewer! For this review, I decided to try my hand at the Bubble Tee dress. It has a partial t-shirt/tank top for the bodice and then a simple sewn bubble skirt is attached to make it nice and bouncy and perfect for twirling.
The directions are really easy to follow and from cutting my fabric to giving it to Penny to wear it probably took me 30-45 minutes total to finish! Gotta love a fast project that looks cute too!
Here is my version on little Miss Penny.
The verdict? She loves it!
I bought an inexpensive t-shirt at Walmart, although up-cycling a stained or outgrown t-shirt would work well too! And then I used some of my Heather Bailey stash to create the bubble skirt. This dress is perfect for our Spring…well, soon to be Summer weather. It’s nice and light and airy!
And like I said, perfect for twirling!
