Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses Blog Tour and Giveaway

Sunday, May 12, 2013

Welcome to the “Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses” blog tour, featuring finished projects and giveaways from Sweet Seams’ latest book. The designers over at NYC-based Sweet Seams wanted to create a collection of fast, fun, and inexpensive dresses to make for their daughters, granddaughters, nieces and god-daughters. The dresses, which all start with a simple T-shirt, were inspired by all the little girls in their lives who feel special in projects that were made especially for them. Crafters can upcycle any T-shirt, maybe even an old favorite that doesn’t quite have the same fit anymore or one that’s stained near the hem. With 28 very different styles to choose from, anyone can find a design that fits the little girl in their own life.

When Sixth & Spring Books recently invited me to participate in this tour, I was eager be a part of it and promote this great book.  I love projects that are quick & easy-to-make, and this book is full of great ideas that allow you to not only make use of an existing t-shirt (can't get much easier than that!) but then, to customize the garment with your own fabric choices and embellishments.  The designs are for girls ages 2 to 8 and range from party dresses to tunics.  There really is something for everyone in this book!
