This week I turned a floral print hand-me-down shirt from my sister into a cute crocheted dress for Ally! Here's how...
I finished the edges of the top front and back. Then I took in the sides - sewed the side seems from 0" above the bottom shirt ruffle to about 1" at the sleeve hole.
here at the Sara vs. Sarah blog (method 3). I pierced the fabric with a large sewing needle (hole are about 5/8" apart) and used size F5 hook to do a blanket stitch all the way around (sc in each hole with ch2 in between). The yarn I used is pretty dense and thick so adjust the stitch to your needs. Finish off.
For the straps I made 18 rows of single crochet on the right front side, then joined my strap to the back using a slip stitch. Repeat for the left side.
For the bottom of the dress, I removed the bottom ruffle and finished the new bottom edge of the dress.
Here's the finished dress. I love the teal and pink together. It's so shabby-chic!
Thanks for looking :)
