Jacinda at Prudent Baby posted directions for transforming a plain child’s t-shirt into a tunic, and it’s supposed to take just five minutes! I love the idea of just adding onto a shirt to make a unique (and longer) top, but I don’t think it should only be for kiddos. I want  one of these for myself! Either way, this is a great way to lengthen last year’s shirts and get a bit more use out of them! [click here for 5 minute t-shirt tunic tutorial]

Jacinda used a lovely vintage scarf for her t-shirt transformation, but you could easily use a dollar store tea towel, a bandanna (they have lots of variety at the big blue store), or hey, even doilies would be cute! I don’t have little girls, but I wonder if it would be cute to use the bottom of a dress shirt on a t-shirt for boys? Just an idea.

Project Estimate:

  • Old t-shirt or tank top, on hand
  • Scarf, tea towel, or bandanna, $1 or on hand
  • Sewing stuff, on hand
