Trudy from HotPatterns produced this great YouTube tutorial on how to lengthen a t-shirt pattern to a dress. But it’s not as simple as just extending the side seam down, as you’ll see in the video. If you want to go sleeveless, check out her tip for the underarm seam to be sure your bra is covered!
And, best yet, you can take my Nursing Tee Shirt tutorial and do this alteration for either a sleeveless nursing maxi dress or a nursing t-shirt short sleeved maxi dress! Hot Patterns Cabana Tee or Plain and Simple Tee gives these tee dresses an awesome wide scoop neck and relaxed vibe. I would consider this project an easy beginning clothing project. Easy to fit, easy to sew, and a good first knitwear project.
