If you are looking for a fun sewing book to read and create with this spring/summer Sew Pretty T-shirt Dresses is the book for you. Inside you will find beautiful pictures and easy to read instructions, with more than 25 different dresses to create. Since the bodice is done (t-shirt), you can spend your time decorating the bodice and making the skirt.
I have made tons of t-shirt dresses, even one for myself and more recently a shirred night gown. In this book I noticed right away, the t-shirt disappears. The authors give you ways to embellish the bodice as well as the skirt of each dress, this makes the t-shirt disappear! The end result is a beautiful dress that you make in half the time because you could spend more time embellishing and creating an amazing skirt.
There are no templates inside this book because most are rectangle or square shapes. This means easy cutting, I do recommend a rotary cutter and mat.
