Make a dress out of an old flannel & tshirt

In this video we learn how to make a dress out of an old flannel & t-shirt. First, measure your body on the bust. Then, take an old shirt and mark the measurement on there. Then, cut where you marked the shirt leaving 1/2" extra. After this, attach the top of the dress to the flannel by sewing it with either a needle and thread or a sewing machine. After this, take the part that you cut off and sew it to the bottom of the dress. When finished, try this on and enjoy wearing your new homemade dress for no cost to you!
