I got this idea from american apparel. My friend did this to go clubing one night!!
take a plain men's t-shirt size corresponds with length you want your dress to be. this is a small. Put the neckline above your bust.
now take the sleeves and tie them in front of your bust (double knot) and then tuck excess fabric under the knot. All done!!! :) enjoy
I love it. I go to the thrift store almost every day, so I can buy a whole bunch of Mens T-shirts for less! thanks!
I don't know what's wrong with me, but I can't get my hubby's large t-shirt collars to stretch large enough for it to go over my shoulders or around my hips to be in place.
Am I missing a trick here??? I would LOVE to try this, but don't want to buy any XXXL shirts to do so.
so cute and so simple!!! ill totally be able to fit in this without stretching the neckline! i am small for my age. I'm 11. i luv to sew!!
wow never thought of that!!!
Okay, I tried it and was pleasantly surprised at how easily the neck stretched out for me! But, I liked mine tied in the back way better, because the tee had a great graphic print on it. Just...if you tie yours in back, find someone to help make sure it's tight enough!
I don't see this working without cutting the neckline off, or even being able to tie the sleeves...but I'll try it, LOL.
If I want this to work I have to cut the neck off. Otherwise this does not work for bigger bust lines. I love it tho!
never mind i didnt know the necks could stretch that much!
ya how did you do the neckline? did you cut it????
