DIY Ladies Polo Shirt Upcycled to Girl’s Dress

Suomenkielinen versio täällä

For a change, I made something for children and not even for my own two this time. One of my friends was about to give a pink Tommy Hilfiger polo shirt to the thrift store, but I suggested I could make something out of it for her daughter instead. So a mini polo dress it became. And the new owner is a tree-year-old young lady.

Here’s the original polo shirt:



Instructions in short:

1. Cut off the sleeves and cut the side seam open.

2. Use a pattern from a child’s blouse to trace a smaller sleeve opening and sleeve.

3. Sew the sleeves to the sleeve opening and close the side seam.

4. Done!

Not sure about the length of the dress since the new owner is yet to try the dress on. I think it might be slightly too long.

I recommend you use quite a small polo shirt as a starting point as the collar and other details look much better if they are not too ”oversized”.  And it saves you from hemming the dress again as well.
