hehe thedishclothqueen, I think you're me. I say go for it!

Awesome dresses you guys! I made a tshirt dress years ago. I think I tye-dyed white shirts and mine was very loose-fitting. (of course, more things were loose fitting on me 20 years ago)  Roll Eyes

That is so cool!  I love what you did to that shirt!  It's a very cool shirt, also.   Smiley  It looks so great, but as you said a bit short.  If you wanted you could probably rip the skirt off and remake it?  But then you'd ruin oodles of hard work.   Sad  The dress is super cute, no matter the length!

This dress rules! I am new to Craftster, and I think this will be my first project to attempt! It would be rad over jeans if you wanna wear it during the day.

That is sooo amazing.  I mean, really, a shirt that sayd "boogie dancing" on it in the first place is pretty freaking amazing.  But making a dress and then wearing it with bright red shoes?  Genius, I tell you.  Great job!   Grin

i don't think you can beat that awesome boogie dancing shirt! 

i am in the process of making a similar one.  black shirt with red waist.  so far:  waist is a little baggy, oops!  and the skirt is a little snug...eek.  but i'm happy with the general shape, etc.  i did not cut the top off mine, so it still has mini-sleeves, and i chopped out the neck some.  i will attempt to take some pics later.  quick question...i am using a zig zag stitch...medium length and width...is there a better one i should be doing, it seems like it always shows on the outside, like when the seam stretches apart a little you can see the thread.

thanks for the inspiration!

I love that dress.

I'm trying to decide if I have the body to pull it off.  140, 5'6", size 10, 36D.  Would anyone be repulsed if I did?  Wink Grin Undecided

i almost have your measurements, but with a smaller boobies... i say do it girl! repulsed would certainly not be my reaction;)

thank you ladies for the compliments, this dress has been hanging on my clothes rack for awhile, but maybe it's time for it to come out with me again.

elfin enigma, i use zig zag on stretchy fabric because it doesn't break when the fabric stretches, but yah that's the down side, it does show a little. you can use a bright contrasting colored thread for that "i meant for it to show" look.

post pictures when your finished, please!?! 

-What's your take on Cassavetes?

alright, here we go.  i hope the picture works, bear with me!

it says, ironically over the chest, "small but beautiful", haha.  and i tried to touch up the image with red acrylic paint where it had cracked.

i like BOTH of the dresses! i'm thinking about trying one with a cheesy souvenir shirt that has a 70s style surfer and wave on the front.
thanks for posting both projects you two! Smiley
