We all have those great comfy Tee’s that we sleep in. Sometimes the prints on them are so great, I wish I could wear them out and not just when I’m lounging around- being lazy. So I thought I’d turn this large men’s shirt into a dress. It was pretty simple. I’ll take you through the steps. First, use a pre-existing dress to cut a pattern so that you can make sure it fits you. (cut it a little bigger than your dress so it allows room for the new seem) Then flip it inside out and pin it along the side so that you can sew up the two edges that you’ve cut. Next, cut the neck of the T-Shirt off and then simply cut away to adjust the arm holes. And there you go! Shirt to dress in just a few minutes.
I really loved how the dress turned out!
It makes for a really sporty look.
I paired it with my Nike Blue Chips, Under Armour leggings, and Forever 21 jacket.
Now it’s your turn! Let’s see what you come up with.
I am ging to try this! thanks for the cool post!
of course! if you blog about it, send me the link!
Wow! This was so cool!
And easy as well. You’ve seriously paired it up pretty darn well. Where did u get that jacket from?
why thank ya! the jacket is from Forever21!
Wow! You are innovative, artistic and a fashion genius. You are also a good model and very photogenic. Who takes the pictures of you? They do a good job too.
haha- it’s kinda ridiculous. I take the photos of myself.
I was thinking that but thought, no she could not have…:)
Cute! My daughter and I have had a go at cutting up T’s for fun and loved the results… but a dress takes it to a whole new level! Will have to try this. p.s. thanks for the photo instructions. 🙂
It’s really fun! I have another shirt that I’m going to try and turn into something else too.
I love the transformation from over-sized t-shirt to shapely dress. What a great look teamed with the leggings and the jacket!!
Love it! I’m gonna try it!
What a great transformation! I’m going to have my girls check it out.
Wow! That’s really cool! I’ve tried to cut up my t-shirts before, but never successfully. Will give this ago!
Nice!!! Reusing and repurposing are two of the cornerstones of living a green lifestyle. Not only do you look mahvelous, but you’re doing the planet a favor by keeping something out of landfills. Well done!!!

Great idea and very versatile. Way back in the dinosaur age, I majored in Home Economics in college and I loved it! And although it led me to become the President of my own residential and commercial design/build firm, my first love was sewing. I actually made, and tailored, a woman’s suit as my senior project. You name it and I’ve designed and sewn it – draperies, bed hangings, children’s clothes, slipcovers, my clothes, bathrobes, pillow cushions, tablecloths, napkins, gowns, Halloween costumes, etc. Just as you’ve discovered, sewing can be one of the most rewarding and productive of pastimes. Thanks for following my blog.
You’re so sweet to share! Sewing really is rewarding, and a huge stress reliever. Sounds like you’re a very talented! (much more capable at that sort of thing than I am) Thanks for sharing!
