Turn a very oversized tee, into this gorgeous lace up dress.
I actually sell these in my Etsy store. But know that some people prefer to make things themselves. So I am giving you the opportunity. I lost the original step by step pics i took, but kinda winged it with paint at the last minute.

If you have any questions just ask.

I am sorry if it is not easy to understand.

  • How to sew a t-shirt dress. I Love New York Tee Dress - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start with a basic tee of some sort, it doesn't even have to have anything on it. In order to make a small/medium. I needed a XL Tee... if you are not that size, follow this chart.

    Size XS needs Men's Large
    Size S/M needs Men's XLarge
    Size L needs Men's XXLarge
    Size XL needs Men's XXXLarge

    First lay your shirt out completely flat.

    Measure your bust, waist, hips, width of your arms, etc... and mark them out on the shirt.

    Puncture holes with the tips of your scissors (VERY CAREFULLY) every 2 inches or so. about 1 inch from the previously cut edge.

    Make cords by cutting strips 1 inch from the scraps you cut off the shirt in step 2. and pulling them until they roll up into cords.

    Weave the cords in and out of the holes you made like a shoelace. starting at the end of the sleeve. do this to both sides with 2 separate cords. leave some slack at the end of both after weaving to make sure you are able to adjust the dress for comfort.
