(image above is new, with added pockets! Also, much better camera shots!)

I love LOTR enough to not forget about this great tee, the material is alos so soft! So I made me a dress! Yes, I know, the tutorial is very basic. Cut tee acording to lines, sew pieces together acording to diagram... You can do it!!! Cheesy I also added the elastic from my VS Xmas seasonal panties to the back to gather the tee fabric together instead of making a fitted dress. This also makes putting the dress on and making it stay on easier, so you may want to invest in elastic. I am considering adding some pockets to this, because I have fallen in love with mini-pockets!



White legs because of the leggings (aka baseball pants, not real leggings).

That is all folks. I'm not sure about all the names for these things, so feel free to suggest/instruct me on the matter!

What I used for elastics - Victoria Secret panties!

Oh, I am wishing I had a star wars shirt. Hmmm... I wonder if my boyfriend will realize if his SW shirt goes missing...?

I love those tried and true baseball pants, they even have a back pocket, unlike your regular leggings. And a back pocket is handy if you want to carry taxi money and an ID instead of a big bulky purse!

What a great way of recycling them.  I'm going to try this!  Your dress looks great!
