Sew UP Wednesday...The Tie Dye Diva this week!

I love Sew Up Wednesday at Crafty Mamas. I plan for it all week...it is my one little indulgence in life! Today I took a plain old $4 tshirt from KMart...

 And grabbed one of the new e-patterns on store by The Tie Dye Diva
" BREEZY".

 BREEZY is made up of a readymade singlet top or t shirt, that has a paneled skirt attached. Now anything with panels....you know is going to let you mix and match to your hearts delight! I made mine with 12 panels instead of the 10, as the t shirt I used was 100% cotton and a bit boxy. Fabrics used are a mix of polka dots from my stash, and the very cute Farbenmix "pink toadtsools"  from Crafty Mamas.

I then used a smidge of Farbenmix ribbon in the seam ( how can I not?) , and trimmed the hem and neckline with a stretch gingham lace thingy from the stash.

Such a very easy pattern, suited to beginners. They give you picture steps all the way, lots of tips...love it! 



Happy Sewing!

I love the ruffle you added, it really sets it off. A great dress!
