My DH and I give blood regularly, and most of the time they give us a free t-shirt.  So we have quite a collection of tees, mostly in size huge.  I've never sewed on knit, so I thought I wouldn't waste expensive fabric and just cut up a t-shirt.  Here is the result - I made it sleeveless but she has a shirt under:

Thanks for looking!  Now I have big plans for some of my other old clothes!

Very cute!  I had to look at the picture again after reading about you getting it for donating blood.  My first thought was, "Wow, theit blood center gives out Grateful Dead tees?"

At least I've never claimed to have an eye for fine details...

Where I would wander if I might
From dewy dawn to dewy night.

That's cute! What a great idea - practicing on old t-shirts! Your blood bank gives out way cool shirts!

When I gave birth, I had to have 6 blood transfusions.  So a big thanks to people like you and your husband.  And awesome shirt recon to boot. I keep wanting to turn my old clothes into fabulous things for my 1 year old.  Good job!

No, I don't have a lot of free time on my hands...I just use my time well.

I can no longer donate blood so kudos to you and your husband. I like the frill on the bottom of the dress.

Cool dress. 

I also have a tee that I need to convert to a dress for DD.  She found a st. patricks tee of mine that she loves and wants to wear to school on St. Patricks day.  Only problem is it is huge on her.  So I told her I would try and turn it into a dress.  I hope mine turns out 1/2 as good as yours.  I love the hem.

I can also no longer donate. But thanks to people like you and your hubby, I survived my daughter's birth. People who donate blood are wonderful and should be more heavily recognised for their amazing gift. If I could, I would.

cute dress too Wink
