I made this dress out of a pillowcase and a tshirt with a lame saying on it.

The first time I made it the back was a little messed up but i've evened that out now. I don't have a picture of the back but it's nothing fancy.

I can't help but think this dress is missing something. Undecided

Edit - Here is the tutorial some have asked for.


and i realize this picture is sort of blurred so here is the link to the tutorial:

Nice job! It does seem like it's missing something...maybe if you replaced that edge at the bottom with the same blue as you have at the top?

that's supadupacute!
I think that it's quite perfect as it is!
though maybe you could try three small buttons at the front or have a bigger satin bow at the front?   Tongue

It's really, really beautiful as is.  I second boheme's suggestion for a larger bow, though--maybe you have enough of the T-shirt left?  You could just cut a strip and tie it round under the bust.  That would also fit it a little more snugly.

The sleeves are just darling.
