I had about 4 of my husbands old t-shirts, that I Tye dyed a few months ago, waiting for the perfect project. I already used some of the shirts for this dress . I still had more shirts laying around, so I decided to put them to good use.
I took this shirt, and used this as the fabric for the dress.
Here are the other shirts, I would use too.
I cut this dress out of the shirt, using the existing neckline, and sewed the side seams. I folded under and sewed up the inside sleeves too, and then was ready for some embellishing.
I cut 4 inch strips of fabric from the shirts, and ruffled them using the high tension, high length technique...love that! Then I sewed each layer on starting at the bottom, and went up. I was hoping to have enough layers to make it all the way to the top, but even with 4 shirts, I didn't, so I stuck to just putting the layers on the bottom.
