Ruby is a funny little girl. She will give you sweet hugs one minute and tackle you to the ground the next. She is freakishly strong and has no fear. But she also loves the girly girl stuff.
T-shirt dresses are kind of perfect for her because she can still run around feeling pretty while having the freedom to play. There are lots of tutorials around blogland for t-shirt dresses, so I'm not going to post one here. But just to sum it up, you cut a t-shirt to the desired length and add a skirt - easy as pie. I actually made the top part using Made by Rae's Flashback Skinny Tee pattern. The skirt is just the width of the fabric (cut to 15 inches long, I think?) and gathered to fit the skirt. I added a waistband sash at the last minute, and it made the dress.
The fabric for the skirt is a western print by Samantha Walker called Saddle Up (in gray). I was really tempted to add a matching horse silhouette to the t-shirt top, because Samantha Walker also designs for Silhouette, but decided to leave it off. It would be fun to do in the future though! Kind of opens up a new door of possibilities, being able to match heat transfers exactly to fabric prints ...
