ruffled tshirt dress

ok, so i have been seeing these tshirt refashions everywhere and couldn't resist making one for mackenzie. i took jessica's tute and then adapted the back and front ruffles to my own liking. i did three rows of gathered ruffles on the front neckline and one gathered ruffle across the waist of the dress. i then rolled and tied the back straps and pulled them together into a t-strap using a scrap piece of fabric because my little girl doesn't have a very wide back and the top kept slipping down. and of course, i couldn't forget about adding my button...gotta have a button. i made a rosette flower and sewed the button to the top. that little punch of gold just brightened it all up!

i love how it turned out and it's been perfect for wearing in this roasting hot weather we have right now. bonus is i got to use one of my hubbies super soft t-shirt hand me downs that i couldn't bear to throw out but was too short for me to sleep in.

what do you guys think? have any of you made one yet - i'd love to see them!
