DIY TSHIRT DRESS


DIY below:


I see this dress daily on pinterest. It's a simple design and all it requires is a tie dyed XL tshirt. 

I just did my yearly shibori indigo dyeing and made this dress from my husband's shirt. 
I went with a basic tie dye print my son made for me.
Starting with a much larger than you tshirt...cut the sleeves and remove the collar. 
Cut as such to create a halter. 
 Finish the arm edges or not…Fold over the collar edges and iron or pin. 
 Sew 1/4 inch edge for the front halter.
 For the back cut a slit and then sew the edges over 1/4 in. 
 Weave a string through with a safety pin. I used a strip from the left over sleeve. 
Slide the strings through the back to the opening slit and tie.


Next I'll show you how to add a casing in the middle to give shape to the garment.
