I found a book called DIY Fashion at the library with a tutorial for a t-shirt dress. It looked adorable so I added it to the stack. Turns out the directions were terribly unclear, with no photos or helpful tips on shaping. Sigh.
I fiddled around quite a bit and came up with something but there are a few strange tucks and it's a bit quirky. It's the first piece of clothing I've made myself, though, so I'm excited about the possibilities!
