 heyy my friend works at mcdonalds, and at they`re allowed to where costumes on halloween. so we decided she should go as a hamburger. however, it can`t be an obtrusive costume, with lots of extra frills and things. so i designed this...  we`re thinking she`ll buy a beige tank top, then i`ll somehow alter the rest for her.. but.. i dont know how.. ive altered clothing in the past, (painted, stencilled, etc.) but i want the stripes of colour to go all the way around.. and just painting it would leave cracks, since the shirt is gonna be stretchy. and if i just sew the other colours on, it won`t all stretch.. have any of you ever tried anything like this?? i dont want to mess up, since its her only option right now as a costume.. and i'm pretty excited about it!

That's a rad idea!  I know this is not much of a suggestion of on my part, but would it be possible to dye or paint the various portions of the shirt with Rit dye?

Dying it sounds good...or since you dont have much time, you could always color the shirt with sharpies! *hugs good old all-purpose sharpies*

Here's what I would do for that shirt:

you would need 1 beige tank top, some lighter beige pieces of felt for the sesame seeds (although I don't believe mcdonald's burgers actually have them), one long, thick strip of dark brown, yellow, red, and green fabric (a little longer than the others for the green), and a sewing machine.

Sew or glue the felt pieces on the top part of the shirt. Then, sort of like a ruffled skirt, but not so ruffly and on a shirt, start with the dark brown fabric and sew the top side of the fabric to the shirt, leaving the bottom hanging. Then do the same with the other layers, but with the lettuce, fold it over sort of like pleats every once in a while so it's fluffy and ruffly like real lettuce. that way it won't be too too unstretchy and she can spin around and it will look cool  Grin

I would suggest sewing the layers like this



so you don't have to worry about using different colored threads because nobody will be able to see them. It will also give the layers some dimension.

Hope that helps!

And sew with a zig zag stitch, that gives it more stretch
