I have an old care bear t-shirt that I think would make a great dress for my three year old daughter. I have looked at other posts but could not find anything regarding toddlers. The shirt is an adult small and does not have raglan sleeves. I could try making a halter but am nervous about just cutting away without some sort of idea on how to put it together. Any suggestion would be helpful. By the way I have been sewing on and off for ten years so I am familiar with terms and  techniques.
Thanks.  Smiley

look for instructions on pillowcase dresses and do it that way, very easy. If you have trouble, get back to me and I'll see if I can help. That's a great idea!

i'd say practice on one of her old tee's that you don't mind destroying.  that way if you need to tweak something, you won't have ruined the care bear one.  Smiley

is it big enough to make an enitre dress out of? if not, you could find some cute contrasting fabric and make a ruffle:

Thanks everyone. I really like that purple dress so girlie. I was going to try and make a dress but the more I looked at it I realized that the picture on the shirt was up to high and no matter what I did I would lose part of it. Oh well  Undecided but not all was lost I clean out my closet and found an old plaid dress so I used that to make a dress for her. When I get my camera back I will post a picture. Thanks again for the suggestions. Smiley Smiley
