Ultimate T-Shirt Revamp

LUV THIS plain ole t-shirt revamp into a cute summer dress! While this one is turquoise, mine is going to be bright and pink for summer! You should totally do the same thing and then share your pics on here! It's all part of Vingle My Summer Collection, which you can follow here.
Use a TOO-BIG-FOR-YOU t-shirt and put it on inside-out. This allows you to mark where your shoulders begin with chalk. Just make a mark.
Make a straight line from the shoulder mark to the armpit on the sleeve. Cut along the line you just made.
Trim off the excess of the part you cut off to make the sleeve smaller and more comfortable your your arm. Pin and stitch to the shirt. Don't freak out because of the gaping hole at the bottom of the armpit and shirt.
Stitch up the hole below the armpit.
You can leave the sleeves alone at this point OR you can add some elastic to ruche them.
Using your zig-zag stitch, sew the strip of elastic on the inside of the sleeve. This should go from the bottom of the sleeve to the shoulder. Don't make it too tight or it will look awful!
Using a longer piece of elastic, measure the length and tightness you want to achieve with your dress. Again, don't make it too tight, it's supposed to be gently ruched. Sew it into the shirt to create the waistline you want--as high or low as you like.
All that's left is to add any detailing you want such as lace or beads. I prefer simplicity and plan to throw on a cute necklace and some flats for summer. What are you going to do?

Make A Tulle Circle Skirt
Note to self, when making this and shooting a selfie, HOLD A DOZEN GOLDEN YELLOW ROSES! This is such a fun and elegant way to wear a tulle skirt! Using black fabric tulle keeps it classy without looking like a tutu or a costume. This project requires a sewing machine but that doesn't mean that it's a hard project. It's actually quite easy, as you'll see... What You Need: Tulle Lining (same color of tulle) craft paper scissors elastic (1"-1.5" thick) straight pins marking chalk Step 1 Use craft paper to cut a large square. Then measure your hip measurement out from one corner (just keep pivoting the ruler to make lots of marks and connect the dots at the end to get your rounded edge). Repeat the process from the same corner to find the bottom of your skirt line, but add the waist measurement to your total skirt length for that number (so if your length is 22" and your waist measurement is 6.5", then measure out 28.5"). Cut out your pattern paper. Cut squares of tulle that are big enough to fit your paper pattern when the the square is folded in half, and then folded in half again to make a smaller square that is 1/4 the original size. Using the example numbers above, you would need a square that was 57" wide (28.5 x 28.5 = 57) when unfolded. The number of squares you have determines the number of layers your skirt will contain, so buy your fabric yardage accordingly. If you can't find a tulle wide enough to get a square as big as you need, you'll have to sew two pieces side by side first before cutting your square down to size. Fold your large square in half, and then in half again, and place the pattern so that the corner with the middle of the square is near the waistline of the pattern. Use fabric scissors to cut along the waistline and bottom hemline. Unfold the tulle, and you should have a giant tulle donut! Step 2 Cut out as many layers as you want for the tulle. Cut out an extra piece for your lining. Either hem the lining so it's shorter than the tulle, which is what you want, or serge it on a serger or baby lock machine. Completely up to you. Don't over think it. Step 3 To make your waistband, pin the elastic around your natural waist so that it feels snug but not too tight. Wiggle out of the elastic and sew it together at that point. Trim the ends to 1/2" long, fold the ends down, pin in place, and sew those down to flatten them. Step 4 Use marking chalk to mark 4 equal sections on the waistline of your tulle circle. Do the same with the inside edge of your waistband. Use the marks to line up your waistband with your fabric and pin with 4 straight pins at each mark (you'll pin the bottom inside edge of the waistband onto the top of the fabric layers. Step 5 Since your elastic waistline is probably smaller than your fabric opening (that's measured to the widest part of your hips), you'll notice that there is some gapping where the sections of tulle are longer than the elastic. In that case, just pin the middle of each gap to the middle of the elastic section so you now have 8 pins total holding your layers together. Step 6 To sew your layers together, turn your skirt inside out and sew a few stitches near where a pin is holding the layers together. While the needle is in the down position, pull your elastic towards you until the fabric gap straightens out and sew along the waistband with a 1/2" seam allowance on the fabric layers. Continue this process of pulling the elastic and the fabric straight and sewing until you get all the way around the waistband. Not bad, right? More like FANTASTIC! Enjoy your brand new tulle circle skirt. Where it out in style. Grab some flowers too for that selfie! If you love these kinds of projects, please click here for even more to do!

Wearable Sequin Phrases - DIY
Sequins are kind of my thing. Be warned! And be glad I haven't inundated the DIY Community with sequin projects! My mom calls me the sequin princess. Well, she did when I was younger. And lately I've resurrected my obsession with the dainty sparkles. Supplies: sweatshirt sequin trim needle and thread fabric glue marker X-Acto knife (or scissors) Step 1. First, choose a cursive handwritten font and print your phrase the size you want it to appear on your garment. Step 2. Use scissors or an X-Acto knife to cut out your letters to make a template for your sequins. Place it where you want your phrase to be and use a marker to trace the middle of your phrase. Step 3. Place some fabric glue on the left side of the marker outline and set your sequin trim on top of the glue (you want the whole phrase to be outlined with one row of sequins when you're done). Step 4. Once you have one row of sequins completed, use your fabric glue to place another line of glue on the right side of your marker line. Take your sequin trim, make a U-turn at the end of your phrase, and trace your phrase backwards by placing the trim on the glue (you'll want the rows to overlap a bit). When you get back to the beginning, trim your excess and fold your end sequin under the second-to-last sequin (on both the beginning and end of your strand) and glue in place. Step 5. Once the glue is dry, use a needle and thread to secure your phrase to the sweatshirt by sewing every third or fourth sequin to the actual sweatshirt. This extra step gives the phrase some added durability in the wash. Cute sequin phrase oversized shirts and sweaters are perfect to throw over some leggings and make a run to Target or wherever!
