Remixed Sewn Skater Dress

By: Rhea from Sealed with a Stitch

This is so much more than just a free dress pattern. Use an old men's shirt to create your own Remixed Sewn Sweater Dress. Follow along with the pattern and discover how easy it is to use what you have an save on fabric. Add buckled and leather straps to the piece to create a one-of-a-kind look. If you have a little sewing experience under your belt and love working on easy sewing patterns, this is the perfect project for you. Once you make a pattern using recycled materials, you'll never want to head to the fabric or craft store ever again.

Sewn byMachine


  • Too large man’s jumper
  • Buckles
  • Faux leather scraps (optional)



  1. Dissect your jumper. Remove the pocket if there are any.

  2. Cut off the sleeves - they serve as your front and back bodice.

  3. Cut out a scoop neckline on the front and back bodice as desired.

  4. Create cutouts on the front piece.

  5. I took some faux leather scraps then based its measurement from the front cutouts leaving half an inch seam allowance. As a rule of thumb, sew them on right sides together. Also, I sewn a 20″ tube for the straps and divided it into four (adjust it to your desired length). Attach the buckles in place. Sew the front and the back pieces together.
  6. Next step, make your own bias tape! Or, you may opt to buy from the fabric store it’s a lot easier. Here’s how I made mine - Grab some fabric scraps of your choice and since my motif’s green-black I used black fabric. Now take your ruler and measure a 1.5″ width. For the length, the longer the better.

  7. Since my fabric’s not long enough, I had to cut few more strips to elongate the tape, sew them together.

  8. Press the seam open.
  9. Fold it in half and press. Then fold the half of each side in half. Fold it four times towards the inside.

  10. You can now sew the tape on the dress’ raw edges.

  11. Cut across your jumper’s armhole, this will serve as your skirt. I wanted a detailed skirt so I cut the skirt in half. Cut out an isosceles triangle shape from my faux leather scraps then sewn the trim onto each side of the skirt.

  12. Lastly, sew both sides of your skirt together, gather then sew it on top of your bodice.
