I am in love with these mens over sized photo print shirts from wal mart so I had to get one and make a dress . I LOVE everything about it
All i really did was remove the long sleeves resize it to a loose t dress fit and added leopard to bind the arm holes




Thanks for looking and have a great day

This dress suits you very well.

Did you use a serger, a sewing machine or sew it by hand?

Thanks for the positive comments . I surged this dress and usually I would surge and sew with a regular machine But this 100 % polyester ( silky ) fabric didnt want to go near the sewing machine lol . The surger however did a great job on keeping the seems wobble free

Unique and fabulous! I can't say enough about how awesome this dress is, especially because of it's simple beginning as a men's shirt.

I found the owl and the tiger on sale at Wally's for 3 bux today. I do not have a serger, though. Did you just cut away the excess from the sides and taper it at the waist?

I checked and I'm a little upset that Walmart doesn't seem to carry this print anymore! I think it's more wearable than a bear in mirrored sunglasses on camo... but I might have to reconsider.

yep thats just what I did . My serger is down for repairs right now Sad so I used a simple wide zig zag stitch then went over that with a straight stitch to lock the seems good and tight . I often use zig zag in place of serging , and it works really good for creating a nice finished looking seam you just have to trim the extra material off by hand

My memory isn't as sharp as this sword. I don't remember if I posted my owl dress/tunic. A pal actually sewed it up for me before I got my serger.

She put stretch lace on as cuffs on the 3/4 sleeves and edged the neckline with it as well.



The sword is pretty dull, actually. Smiley
