My Maybe Matilda McIntosh Knock Off Dress


Rachel at Maybe Matilda is a genius. The wide sash is exactly what a grown up tee shirt dress needs. I used her tutorial, found here. The higher waistline is a new look for me and I think I like it. I didn't allow enough fabric to tie my sash in a bow but I think it looks fine knotted. I used an old (and seamless- must figure out how to make another one!) Victoria Secret shirt from forever ago that I never wore because it was too short and a linen look fabric (it's 65% poly 35% cotton).


  1. Wow! I love it! It's a great style on you, and it looks fantastic! Thanks so much for letting me know . . . you did a great job!

  2. Oh my, that's so cute! I'll have to try this when I get a chance!

  3. this came out adorable!!! And you have a picture of your bum on-line, you are so brave. Looks great! (the dress, not the, not that your bum looks bad

    Foot in mouth.

    Great job :)

  4. Great color for a skirt. And the knot looks so chic.

  5. Emily, that skirt looks exactly the same as a skirt I just bought for Caitlin at Anthropolgy for$118. Dumb me! Yours is so cute! (And so is Caitlin's, but the price makes it not as awesome :)).

  6. That looks great! (Came over from Maybe Matilda). Seeing your success makes me want to make one EVEN more!
