I love coming up with new ways to repurpose mens t-shirts. This sun dress is made by sewing 2 shirts together. This is a great sewing project for beginners who want to make a dress but aren’t quite ready to start using patterns.
- 2 mens t shirts (I dyed mine)
- Elastic (1/2″ wide and the length of your waist
|Cut the 1st shirt off 7 inches below the armholes
Cut the 2nd shirt off right underneath the armholes- the hem at the bottom will be the hem of the dress
Turn both pieces inside out and sew together in the middle to form the waistband. Sew the elastic to the inside of the waistband.
The neckline on my t-shirt was tight, so I cut it off, made the opening larger and sewed a 1 1/2 section of fabric on as trim
