Default turn a tshirt into a dress

Okay so I ordered s shirt for my dd from her school. The order form said to go one size bigger because they run small. She picked out an orange and white tye dye t with a leopard on it ( her mascot) I ordered her a med. She is about a size 5 but it said go bigger. Anyway I got it today and it is HUGE!!!! I called the school and they won't do refunds or exchanges so I am stuck with the darn shirt that she will not be able to wear until she is out of that school. is there anyway that it can be turned into a dress?

I am thinking it would need some white ruffles around the bottom to make it long enough but the biggest problem is it is too wide and idk how to fix that part.


Thanks for the tuts!

Check out the ones at oliviasultimate on etsy. If it's an adult medium you can cut the top and bottom from sep. shirts and make a really cute dress like these

Can you take in the sides?? or is the picture to big? If you can take it in from the sides then you can probably cut off the bottom and add a skirt to it to make it something like this

Here's something I did once. Cut a slit on one side of the seem. Take a ribbon and thread it through to the other side and tie. KWIM? that way you can tighten it and tie it to the size you need. Hope you understand what I'm saying. I'm terrible at getting across what I'm trying to say. It really turns out cute. You can use a matching ribbon.
