Do you ever just need that quick dress that will go anywhere
from day to a night out.
Well I did and I needed it in a hurry, so I made one out of two T-shirts.
Then I dressed it up with a little Tulip Fabric Paint.
Things you need
- Two large men's t-shirts (or a size that fits you)
- Sewing machine
- Tulip Silver Fabric Paint
- Sponge or brush
- Safety Pin
First I used the tape to tape under the arms of my grey shirt
*This helps me cut a straight line.
Cut your shirt.
Do the same to the black shirt.
Cut two- 2 inch strips from the bottom of your Black t-shirt to make your ties
Put to the side for now.
Pin your two shirts right sides together.
*Be sure you are sewing the cut ends of your shirts together.
You want the hemmed ends on the top and the bottom of the dress.
Sew your first stitch about 1 inch from your bottom edge.
Open your dress and stitch another row
making a one inch channel all the way around.
Now take the two strips you cut
and stretch them to make a tube like string.
Tie the string to a safety pin or a bobby pin: Whatever you have.
Cut a small hole between the one inch channel you sewed.
Thread your string through.
Do the same to the top edge of the grey shirt.
Cut a small hole and thread your string through.
*The best part about this
is that the top part of the grey shirt already has a hem.
No more sewing needed.
Now here comes the fun part.
Tape off the bottom part of your dress in a chevron pattern.
Paint your stripes.
Pull off your tape and let dry for 6 hours.
Just a little detail.
Now you can wear your fun new dress.
This is a really easy and quick project when you need a dress ASAP.
