Off the shoulder Tee- shirt dress:. Re Post.

I am looking back through all of my DIY's and this is
was one of my favorite DIY's that I have done to date.
I am dreaming of those warm summer days where this can be worn.
A little blast from the past.

This dress is an idea I thought would be cute and easy to make for summer,
It's made out of two plain black  T- shirt. You can dress this dress up for a fun night out or 
dress it down for a day of shopping or a stroll on the beach.
Very similar to the off the shoulder dress I did for Brassy Apple HERE 
but with a twist.

Things you need.
  1. 2  T-shirts *I used a Large for the top and an Extra Large for the bottom.
  2. Scissors
  3. Sewing Machine
  4. Large Safety Pin
  5. Straight pins
  6. 4 studs * Hobby Lobby in the leather section.

  •  Measure the shirt with a dress you already have
  •  or measure from your shoulder to just below your hip
  • Mark your shirt.
Shirt #1
  •  Cut where you marked

Shirt #2
  • Cut a straight line right under the arms, ( this will be the bottom part of my dress)


  •  Pin the two shirts Right sides together.

  •  Sew the two shirts together about and inch above where they meet..  
  •  Turn the bottom part right side out,
  • Sew an inch below where you sewed your first line.
  • This will be the channel where the tie will go through.
  • Cut a small slit in the center of your channel.
  •  From the scrap part of the shirt that you have left over,
  •  cut an inch wide strip.
  •  Stretch it out to make a rope.
  • Attach the end of the string to a large safety pin,
  •  Weave it through the slit all the way around the the other side.

 Now, for the one shoulder look.

Mark a diagonal line from under one arm to the top of the other shoulder.

  • Mark a diagonal line from under one arm to the top of the other shoulder.
  •  cut on your line

  • Hem a 1 inch hem
  • *You want to leave an inch channel so you can weave a knit string through it.

  • Out of your scrap material, cut a one inch strip.
  •  Stretch it to make a knit string.
  • Make a small slit at the top of your shirt in the hem.
  • Attach your knit string to a large safety pin and thread your knit string through the channel.
  • You could Dress it up even more by adding a pretty sheer ribbon or a sequin ribbon instead of a knit string.

 Now you can tie it up as tight or as loose as you want.

Thinking of summer ?
This is a through back DIY that was one of my very favorites.

Lots of <3,

  1. I've been looking through your blog over the past couple of days and I must say that your posts are incredibly awe-inspiring... i.e., not just inspiring! I make it a point to find a blogger at least once a year and tell her (could be a him, too) "thank you for all that you do as a blogger". Because the work can be immense, the effort can be painstaking, and the encouragement can sometimes be non-existent. Fortunately, for those of us who truly like blogging (as you do), the rewards are already built in, regardless of how many comments or kudos we may or many not get. Please accept my sincere appreciations for your years of blogging and for the amazing collection of ingenious ideas that have been captured for us. I shall be happily consuming for some time yet as I get "caught up"!


I would LOVE to hear from you. If you have a question, Please leave your Email so that I can respond. I try and respond to all my comments. Have a beautiful day!!
