DIY Sewing Tutorials for Girls Dresses & Skirts

I have a goal, hope, dream, whatever you want to call it (except for resolution), that this year I will sew more clothes.  Probably not for me, but definitely for my daughter.  Last summer I purchased a recycled dress pattern from Lil Blue Boo and was very happy with it.   My daughter ended up with a nice collection of super cute summer dresses (more on that here).  But this year I want to expand her wardrobe and my skills a little, so I did a little tutorial searching via Pinterest.  This search was mainly for simple dresses, but I hope to tackle summer shorts and tanks, too.

Adult sweater into a child’s dress.  So cute and super easy.  Wish I had found this one sooner.  We have such short winter’s here in Texas.  You can find the tutorial here.


Upcycled T-shirt Dress Tutorial. Very easy and personalized.  The tutorial is here.

The city gym shorts are crazy cute.  My daughter lives in shorts during the summer.  Definitely need to give these a try.  You can find the pattern and tutorial here.
