Large T-shirts make good short dresses for shorter people. Hem uses two sleeves from an old denim blouse. Thick warm cotton T-shirt from charity shop.
Press sleeves flat, lay over each other and cut into long rectangles of equal length.
Join seems to make false hem extension. Make angles at the sides.Extended hem ready to join to T-shirt
Turn one long side over twice, 1/4inch to make hem; steam press flat, machine stitch.
The extended hem needs to be a little larger than the t-shirt hem, to give an A-line flare. In this case the hem width was decided by the length of the sleeves used from the blouse.
Work in quarter hem sections at a time, between front – sides, sides to back.
Stitch position leaves the last bit of T-shirt hem loose, for better visual effect.
If not sure how to machine over pins; (it can break your needles) then tack sides together first, before machining.
Dress is solely for home wear and not for sale.
