Title: Does this dress make me look boney?(56k No way!)
Post by: try.fail.repeat on August 12, 2008 10:59:14 AM
I made this dress a couple of months ago. It was originally a kids large long sleeved t shirt. I decided that I didn't want to wear it as a shirt but rather a halter dress. I ended up cutting the back a bit too low which caused my bra to show hardcore so I had to remedy that situation. I added 2 long ties in the back to cover where my bra is (somewhat). I also added pockets with little bows on them and a ruffly skirt on the bottom from another kids t shirt that I had in my stash. I put snaps in the halter tie so that it snaps instead of ties behind my neck. It is a bit short though....I usually have to wear it with either jeans or a pair of leggings underneath if I don't want my booty showing. :o

Oh! I forgot to add in the description that I put some elastic at the top of the back so it would stay up since it was so low cut.

Also, does it glow in the dark?
The little boy I babysit has a onesie version of this top, and he glows like there is no tomorrow!

As far as I know, it doesn't glow. Although, that would be pretty awesome!
