Sparkly Womens Tank to Girls Dress Top August 8, 2016 – Posted in: dress, girls clothes, sewing, upcycled

This dress was so simple to make, but my daughter loves it! The top is sparkly, the bottom is silky, it has a nice drape, and it is comfortable.

The outside is made from a women’s sparkly tank and  the lining is made from a women’s T shirt. The top was constructed using the Uptown/Downtown Dress pattern. This pattern is great for knit fabrics! I have used it several times just to save myself the hassle of drafting my own pattern for something so simple.

She wanted the skirt to be a high-low hem, but I messed up, so it isn’t. It is made of fabric I got at a yard sale or something and I didn’t even bother to hem it.

I was really happy with how neat and tidy it looks on the outside and inside. I used a “burrito” method to sew around the arms.

Overall, I like the simple design of this dress because it lets the beautiful fabrics stand out. I  had everything on hand and didn’t have to buy anything, which makes it even better!
