This is my first post on crafster, but i've been looking up ideas on it for a while, so i figured i might as well give back and submit something.  I made this dress out of 5 T-shirts, one printed beatles shirt for the top, the bottom of a tan shirt for the waist section, and three colored tees for the six trapezoids that make up the skirt.  Let me know if you'd like more info on how i made it, it's a pretty simple design so fairly self-explanatory.  Pics below:

So here's a rough tutorial, let me know if anything is unclear.  I just included the basic steps, only partially illustrated.  The important part is that the width of the botttom of the top shirt, the middle strip, and the top of the skirt are all the same.  To make sure the colored trapezoids are the right size, measure yourself where you want the skirt to start, and make the top of each trapezoid 1/6 of that measurement.  Then just sew all the pieces together!  It's pretty easy, just have to get the measurements right.

(sorry, the tut pic didn't load right before, here it is now)

i actually have no idea where the shirt came from, i've had it for years, but it was so big i never wore it except to bed.  finally i've done something with it!  i just did some searching on the web for it, but didn't have any luck.. its so old they might not print it anymore.
