DIY Shirt Dress

Remember this?  Well, that skirt was made from a shirt that was taken from a pile of my dad's old shirts, and so is this dress. There are still a lot more shirts just waiting around to be deconstructed and made into something beautiful. Some of them may even be in your house, so why not try out this tutorial?


Stuff you need:
Large mens shirt
Needle and thread (Sewing machine would be easier)
Dye (optional)

1. Remove the sleeves.


2. Use another sleevless dress or top to measure the size of your armholes and mark. Cut from that mark all the way down on either side.


3. Turn the shirt inside out and sew the sides back together. I dyed my dress yellow because I wanted something brighter. Wear with a belt and you are ready to go!


I quite like the blurriness of this photo just because of how all the colors look together :)
