Hey guys and gals, I took my Dad's undershirt and made it into a tunic type tank dress thing . [My first ever tunic kinda type thingy dress!]


(I hope he will never notice one of his underwears/shirts was gone)

I didn't know how to use a sewing machine, so i hand sewn it, oh god it was so so so so so so tiring. my neck hurts!

Do you think i should add straps, or anything to it to make it not that boring? Any corrections for the dress? Please help Smiley thanks!

Yaye! i just finish sewing 2 holes. and i realized theres another 3..

I'm glad i was "determined" to sew this tunic. Because i always give up half way when i make stuff. Although the sewing is kinda crappy, and the design is kinda crappy too. Ill treasure this dress forever Cheesy Cuz its the first time i actually "finished" something!

Hei,

the booby part is very nicely done .... the single thing i would do is to add a colorful ribon on the horizontal sewing underneath the boobs.

That's awesome! i don't think it's too sheer, was it one of those under t-shirt shaped type things? Haha, I don't know what to call it.

the booby part is very nicely done

I totally agree, great job!

Thank you for the comments! I think therye called "Men's undershirt"? or "underwear", "under garments". lol I'm not sure.

I was going to add a navy blue ribbon under the boob part. And I think i might make the bottom more "bubbly". The elastic at the bottom was to tight haha

I think the dress is adorable. Great idea for a recon. For my personal tastes though, I would add straps to the dress. But if it stays up fine for you...strapless is cute. Great job!  Grin
