Upcycling, repurposing, or just plain recycling it really doesn't matter what you want to call it we are all agog for the patterns in Sew Pretty T-Shirt Dresses from Sweet Dreams here at the shop!! I just love the idea of mixing favorite t-shirts with fun fabrics and creating an entirely new look for the young ladies in my life!
With that said the tips and techniques in the book are so complete that sizes are easily adjustable up into the adult range and with the confidence that comes with this great instruction anyone can venture out and become a budding designer if that's what you choose to do.
No matter how you wish to approach this fun idea you can't go wrong with any one of the projects from the book.
The embellishments are very creative and the book gives fantastic instruction on how to attach the top to the skirt. That's neat for me, as I get a little nervous working with knits and love it when something takes fear away and leaves confidence in it's place.

I am truly enamoured with the charming designs!! The gathering and clipping corners instructions are clear cut (no pun intended) and concise! Do you hear a theme here...I love to be taught and gain confidence in my projects...how about you?
I love all the designs in the book, but my personal favorite is What's Cooking! I just love the charming apron style and this would be one I would make in my size. Sew with that said, I am off to start taking measurements and see what I can come up with in an adult version!
As always, happy knitting, crocheting and sewing!
