Hey guys! Haven't posted here in years! I saw this photo and this dress looked really easy to make. I'm not 100% how to make it though and I don't want to just start cutting up shirts. Can someone give me a walk through? Thanks!

Kat Von D has tutes kicking around on doing that style of tee recon. Here's how I would cut the shirt:

I would cut out the side seam after doing the slits. Then you just tie the two halves together on the cut side.

However! We can't see the right half of the dress, so it's possible this one is cut on both sides in a symmetrical manner. In which case you'd use the same body measurements, but the "excess" would be evenly divided between both sides of the shirt.

Have fun Cheesy

I think there might be a strap on the shoulder too (covered by her hair). T-shirt physics tells me it wouldn't stay up so high near her neck without one... but I don't know... just a thought.

 If you look really close under her hair there is a strap. I would think they cut the neck line then cut a diamond like on the arm.I to not think they cut all the neck out down the shoulder...


I am able to do personal swaps again so lets get some going Cheesy

I agree with babalina regarding the neckline.  As I see the picture, the shirt was cut all the way on the left side.  On the right side, I think she also cut from the hips down to be able to tie on both sides to form the stretched curl design for the skirt. As for the upper body, only the left side is cut based on the way the shirt slants to the left.
