This t shirt WAS a walmart t-shirt. I cut the sleeves off and staystiched so the opening will not stretch. I cut the neck and secured it with stretch lace binding turned to the inside. So the neck will also keep it's shape. The problem with doing anything with T shirts is that the strechi-ness will distort in the wash or after long wear times. I was going for a Burlesque/ Gothic look. The skirt has two layers. The top layer, I made a pleated skirt form a sheer black organza with little black velvet bats. It's hard to see the bats. They don't come up in photographs. Little Buggers.
I used the same method in the construction of the Frankenstein dress on here.

The second skirt layer is a black rayon with raised white webs and red glitter spiders. I cut this second skirt lower in the back so it would hang like this!

Lovely!  I've seen some fabric like the top layer at a shop here in the UK and have been oo'ing and ah'ing over it but not sure what to make with it.  I should get through my stash first though!

Love the dress. The back view must drive the guys wild because it looks bootylicious. As a woman with a like posterior, this is definitely something that accents it in a very nice way.  Smiley I really like the way the spider web hangs. I really think this rocks.
