January Refashion Month with Justine from Sew Country Chick
Today's guest doesn't need a huge introduction to most of you - I am sure. Justine, blogging from Sew Country Chick is the guest of our series today. It was such a pleasure for me to find out she was in when I first invited her. When I first started following her blog, I would often go there for simply visual inspirations, until one specific post when she told us all her life story. I was so impressed with this women's stories to tell, that I became a reader more than a viewer. Besides this interesting life, she's a very talented seamstress.
I'm Justine from the sewing and craft blog Sew Country Chick and I'm excited to be here today to show you my little girls Valentine's Day dress I made from a men's T shirt.
This dress is super simple to make. There are only 4 seams to sew!I love refashioning with T shirts and sweaters. I can buy brand new T shirts at my craft supple store for $3.99 and with the weekly online coupon I use they end up being only about $ 2.50. They are brand new, and don't have any yucky smells or stains. But since this is a series about refashioning, which is supposed to help the environment, I would suggest you check your husband's closet or your giveaway bin first. I didn't have a red Tshirt so I bought this one with a gift card. You could also just dye a white t shirt. I love dying stuff. It makes me feel like a kid again.Gigi loves this type of comfy knit dress. She slept in it last night and is still wearing it!I used a Martha Stewart stencil I got from the Plaid company when I was working at their booth last week at he Craft & hobby Association's annual trade show. This one is a little silk screen, actually. To read my full tutorial on the making of my dress you can stop by my blog today where I will have the full tutorial posted.Thank you for having me over Magda! Ii have been enjoying all the great refashioning ideas in this series.
Happy sewing folks!
