Since it's made from a t-shirt, it's a comfortable cotton, but you can dress it up with a fun jacket and scarf like I did in my Ocean Scarf pattern - yes, it is the same dress. It also has the added bonus of being quick and easy! As always, if you try this out, let me know by sending me a picture via my contact page! I would love to see what you come up with!
- 1 XL Men's t-shirt
- Seam Ripper
- Sewing Machine
- Using the seam ripper, take the collar off the t-shirt.
- Lying the t-shirt down flat, make a straight cut from about 3-4" beneath the armpit to the edge of the space the collar left behind.
- Turn the t-shirt inside out, and sew front and back pieces together about 3/4" from where you just cut.
- Finally, hem the top edge of the t-shirt, and voila! It is no longer a t-shirt, but a nice, flowing sleeveless dress that you can wear comfortably in the summer or as a swimsuit cover-up.
