DIY T SHIRT INTO tie-up dress
What you’ll need
- oversized t-shirt
- measuring tape
- needles and treads or sewing glue
For this DIY t shirt project, I suggest you select large or an extra large t-shirt. the larger the dress are the more length you can have to work with which is really good. okay then’ let’s start! 1st take your t-shirt and put it inside out and fold it in half. Now remove all the wrinkles out of the t-shirt.
Now make a small mark under the armpit of the t-shirt. Measure 3 inches from the armpit to below you just drew. now mark a small point in between the two marks. now measure 7 inches toward the middle of the shirt and trace out kind of like a “U” shape across the marks you just drew.
After done with that mark the hip and front line. Now cut off all the marks you just made. Open the shirt up and you should have two separate pieces. Now we are gonna start sewing part. But you can use sewing gum as well. sew on the marks we made (3 inches from armpit) earlier. if you need a slim dress cut the sides all the way down and sew it again removing about a half inches. Make sure you do this to both sides. sew or glue the cut outlines we made.
Now cut 8 inches long 3 inches wide two-strip from the leftover fabric. Tie one strip to the front and other to the back. now you are officially done with your beautiful tie up summer dress you just made from an oversized t-shirt.
