Bat wing shirt

I'm not sure who decided that these were in style at some time, but I'm not sure a nice "square" arm is a good look. So let's get our refashion shoes on and go!

Turn inside out and serge or sew.

This is the hard part, making the casing for the elastic. I wanted to make this as easy as possible, so I wanted one seam. Easy peasy. Turn the top of the fabric down about 3"-4" then fold in back on itself. I am not sure how else to describe it. Sew on the fold with the raw edge.

There you go!

Put in your elastic....

I had to put the dress on my little girl first 
then i sewed on the straps just to make sure it fit her well.

Ta-Da! A modern, fun summer dress.
