- T-shirt in contrasting color (I was able use the sleeves off of an adult t-shirt)
- Half a yard of fabric
- Dollar Store Lei
- 1/2 yard of fabric (more for larger sizes)
- Sewing machine and thread
- Straight Pins
- Ziplock baggie (optional)
- Clear or sparkly Nail Polish
Save the bottom for a different project.
Right sides together stitch the two strips together. Press seams open.
Pin the right side of the strip to the right side of the t-shirt with the seams at the side of the t-shirt and stitch together.
Right sides together, pin the long side of the fabric together in and stitch. Press seam open.
Right sides together pin the back seam at the center back of the t-shirt (find center back by folding t-shirt in back and then insert a straight pin. Gather and pin then stitch.
Take the Dollar Store Lei apart by clipping the string. For easier clean up I opened a ziplock baggie and pushed everything off the string into the bag (there are little clear plastic pieces in between each flower that can be hard to see and they can mess up a vacuum cleaner).
Put the button in the center and hand stitch the flowers/button to the dress.
