I've always admired the tshirt to dress recons I allllways see. I've pretty much wanted one since I was sixteen (I'm twenty-three, lol) and I just finally got around to putting one together. The last few weeks my boyfriend has been hassling me that I need a hobby, because I drive him nuts when he gets home from working all day and I've been bored at the house all day. So I figured why the hell not! I went and bought this 2x Batman t-shirt, $7.50 - some yellow material $2 - and some yellow and black tulle (which I decided a tutu made it look too costumesque and didn't end up using) $5. Long story short, the materials I actually used ended up costing me $10. And I got a pretty kick ass dress out of it.
The entire thing is handstitched as I loathe sewing machines. Took a combined total of four or so hours? I may still add a few embellishments at the top, maybe an iPhone sized pocket or a bow? But I'm too excited with this entire thing to wait on posting!

I started a tutorial, but then figured that was silly since I took bits and pieces of multiple tutorials to put this together. So, meh.

Anyhow, BATMAN! [Apparently I can't post pictures yet, because in three years here I haven't managed to post ten times, tisk tisk Priscilla.]

Feedback, suggestions, whatever? Smiley

That is really neat.  I love the yellow band at the hem and the off-the shoulder style.

love it.. and I commend you for your patience to hand stitch the whole thing.  I can handstitch tings, but I prefer my machine.

I am a total Batman nerd, so that caught my eye immediately.  I actually own the same shirt!  I am going to try to replicate this look as soon as I can.  Smiley  Great job, and such a cute dress!  Cheesy
