Tablecloth to Dress In Under An Hour!! Quick Refashion!

Posted on

So I thrifted this tablecloth in it’s bold slightly 60s colours and pattern for only $7.99, but wait…I had a 30% off coupon so that made it only $5.60!

I love the colours and the print, it is so me!!

But unfortunately, someone got some paint or a stain on it so I had to be careful how to cut it for my new dress.

I used this dress which I had previously made from a $4.00 fabric remnant by using a t-shirt that fit me as the pattern for the top and then just lengthening it to my taste.  I lay this dress on top of the fabric, being careful to avoid as much of the stain as possible and cut it out.  Then it was a simple matter of sewing up the shoulder and side seams, zig zagging the raw edges all around, turning over the arm and neck holes and hemming.  I kept the original hem of the tablecloth to save time, but even if I had been forced to hem it, this dress would have still come in under the hour mark.

So here it is in all it’s glory.  I love how it turned out, it fits very well and it was quick and inexpensive.  It will be getting a wearing soon I hope, I am wearing shorts today because of the warm weather.  What do you think of my tablecloth to dress refashion?  Cheers, Michele
