I was shopping at the thrift store and came across this tee shirt like shirt that was totally not my style, but I loved the print.  I picked it up with the idea that it would become something else some day soon.  Many moons later I was craving a freestyle craft session and broke out the box of 'stuff that could be cool after I change it' and it was right on top.  I snipped out all the seams without really knowing where I was going with it, other than it would be great if it could be a dress.  The body of the shirt was enough to create the skirt, the large cowl neck turned into the waist band, and the sleeves (after considerable modification) became the halter top.  I'm super proud of how little was left over!  Enough of my chit-chat though, here's what I did ...

  To me, this says 'bleah'

  Snip, snip, snip (the cuffs became the drawstring for the neck)


Thanks for taking a peek, comments and critiques welcome here.   Smiley

that looks fantastic. I never would have guessed it'd started life as a tee.

Lovely, and so much better as a dress!
