Fabric: I got this XXL three-quarter sleeve t-shirt dress from Old Navy on super sale. I cut it down and had plenty of fabric left for the ruffle and some other projects.
Notions: buttons to go on top of the ruffle (kind of obscured, though) and thread
Cost: About $7, but only because the buttons were so huge.
Pattern: I cut off the sleeves and cut the sides down drastically, although I let it slope out to the hem of the skirt so I could keep the fullness. It does look a little sack-like though, so I like it with a belt.
Time to complete: 1 hour
First worn: May 2010? Something like that.
Where'd you go today in this outfit? Target, the bank, dinner with friends
Good things about this outfit: It's super comfy, but not sloppy (at least, I don't think so!), and if I switch out the belt and shoes, or add a cardigan, it takes on a different look.
Things that weren't so good: The ruffles have gotten stretched out after all the washing, so they're totally covering the buttons. I need to stitch them back down.
Would you wear this outfit again? I already wear it all the time, so I think I will probably continue.
