Gah, I had this post ready to go and then my computer went a little crazy and erased it, so I'll try again...

I've played with a few 3XL shirts I got from threadless, but this is the first one I've gotten several pictures of once making it into a dress, and I'm pretty unsure about it, so I thought I'd post it and see what you guys think about it.

Realize that I started this around midnight, on a whim and kind of randomly went along until I had the final piece and I took some really crappy pictures, woot! Um, I'm pretty tired, so going to bed as soon as I post this.

Comments and constructive criticism are more than welcome. I know the seams don't match up like they should, but I'm a total beginner with this stuff... so, just lemme know what you think :} Thanks!

Very creative, but I think you should wear pasties.

I think what you did in the back looks really good, and is smart!
I always hate skirts/dresses that feel like your bum's going to fall out if you lean forward even a little. The way yours v's definitely will keep that from happening. I may have to try to do that myself next time I make something.

Yeah I had realized there was a nipple issue that would have to be taken care of before going out in it - but I was so tired I didn't realize it came across in the photos too. Crap, lol. Nothing that can't be fixed with a bandeau or something. *shrug* Thanks for the feedback :}

I love love loooooove how you did this.  Is there any way you would be willing to do a quick how-to??  I'm pretty sure I've got the gist of it, but would love to see just how you cut the original tee.

I love the light feel of the dress - it's perfect for spring/summer!
