This is awesome!  I can't believe how simple it is to make.  I definitely want to try it out.  Thank you for the tutorial!

BTW, you are gorgeous!  I am jealous of your beautiful, long red locks!  Smiley

I love the tie dye effect.  You have created a very useful tutorial.  The little bit of elastic is a brilliant idea to improve the fit and look of the garment. Thank you.

I NEVER would have thought of anything like that! Brilliant!

As soon as I have our bundle of joy in December and lose the baby weight - I'm making this!!

Loved the look of this project! I tried it immediately but only had plain black tshirts, so to liven it even just a little, I cut the bands off the arms of the sleeve on top and about 6-8 inches off the bottom shirt (to make more of a tunic than a dress). Then I used a zig zag overcast stitch in bright green around the raw edges. The only thing I didn't like too much are the pockets. Maybe this style just doesn't work well on a body shape like mine? hmmm....






I'm definately not a seamstress,more like a "when the mood strikes" sewer! So take it from me, this project is EASY.

I think it looks really well on you.  I have a similar bodyshape and I am definitely going to try this. Thank you for  putting up pictures of your version as they show more details of the cowl and the pockets.

@Mindle83--I agree with elderflower! I think it looks awesome on you. To me, this style works for a lot of people because it's cinched just under the bust and I think that's flattering on a lot of shapes.

thanks guys! it was SUPER easy and I think the bad pocket situation could  be cured by getting another size or 2 bigger in the tshirts. Since I just grabbed some from the closet the were the size i wear all the time so that was not something I thought of at the time, but now I know so I can't wait to try it again.
