MATERIALS FOR UP CYCLED GIRLS DRESS:
1. Pick a t-shirt that fits your child nicely. Try to avoid anything that has gathers or that is really slim fitting like a tank-top. We are going to be playing around with several different design options so bring something that has a print on the very top of the shirt, is a solid colour, a print.
2. Bring in 5-6 other T-shirts (we only use about 1/4 of the shirt so you can use the extra material for making additional dresses). Bring in different colours, prints, stripes, dots, solids ect. It is good to have variety so I would bring approx half prints and half solids. I also recommend bringing adult sized t-shirts in as it will fit the design better.
3. Matching and coordinating thread
*******4. Please have your child put on the top and measure from the center front of the top of the T-shirt to where you would like the hem of the dress (sizes are approx we just do not want to make the dress to long or too short).
****WE WILL PROBABLY HAVE TIME TO MAKE AN ADDITIONAL DRESS SO FEEL FREE TO BRING IN MATERIALS FOR A SECOND DRESS
Additional tools: Sewing machine, sewing needles, scissors, pins, tailors chalk,
If you have a rotary cutter, grid ruler and rotary mat this would also be helpful (I will be bringing some in but we will have to share).
Space is limited so book in advance to ensure availability
