 my adorable snoopy tshirt dress. sorry if this has been done before but i felt like trying to make a tutorial and i hope this helps someone. it was lots of fun to make, and walmart had tons of men's shirts on clearance for like 2 or 3 dollars so i really couldn't pass some of them up.







i started out with this 3x mens snoopy shirt from walmart


and this shirt that fits me well for a pattern


i layed it on top of the larger shirt and traced the outline flaring it out at the bottom and for the sleeves.



and then cut out one side.


then i folded it over and traced it onto the other side to keep it symmetrical.


then cut out the other side.


turn it right sides together and sew along the cut edges.


then turn it right side out and you've got a dress.




 
i ended up putting a piece of material in the neckline because my mom thought i showed a little much cleavage. hope you liked it. and thanks for looking.
summre.

It looks cute on you.  It sounds so easy.   I will steal my hubby's large T-shirts and make one for myself.  Thanks!

Looooovely dress and really straightforward tute which is SO helpful as i'm altering a few tshirts myself!

Quick question though, did you sew/hem the neckline or was the tshirt made of jersey so you didnt need to?
Thanks!
