Hello, I am Justine from the Sew Country Chick blog and I am so happy to be posting here at Project Run & Play! I have been following Project Run & Play and participating in the Flickr group Sew A Long for two seasons now. I am grateful for Project Run & Play because it has helped me take my children's sewing more seriously and I have been exposed to some really creative and wonderful blogs.
My tutorial today is for the French Mariniere t- shirt dress.
This dress was a part of my signature look for the Project Run and play Flick pool:
This is a very simple dress to make.
I have had a love affair for the Mariniere tee for years now and it seems I am not he only one. I have some good company!
Are you convinced yet that this is a great look and that you need one too?
Although the Mariniere is easy to find outside of France for adults, finding them for children is very difficult so I decided to make one for Gigi.
Here are the directions for the tutorial:
An adult white t shirt from the hobby shop
marine blue fabric paint
a small paintbrush
wooden or sailor type anchor buttons
a sewing machine
Bon Jour mes amis!
