Picture of Cheeseburger Dress
Make your own cheeseburger dress at fast food prices! Unlike that fancy crocheted hamburger dress (admittedly the inspiration for this one), all you need to make this dress are basic sewing skills and items found cheaply, easily and locally.

Step 1: Materials and Supplies

Picture of Materials and Supplies
You will need:
- a long tan camisole (Since this will become a dress, make sure it comes down to at least the middle of your hips. Also, err on the side of it being slightly too large as it will have to go over your hips entirely in the end.)
- felt* in white, yellow, red, and green (or, as my craft store called it, 'pirate')
- brown fleece* (for texture), or any other brown fabric you have lying around
- tan or white puffy paint
- scissors, needle, thread, and preferably a sewing machine**

*Fleece and felt will not make you look svelte. They will make a great looking burger, though.

**You can substitute a glue gun for the needle and thread if you don't trust your sewing abilities, are in a hurry, or enjoy stiff, inflexible seams. You can also substitute duct tape in various colors for all of the materials if you are a big Red Green fan.

This would be perfect at a Jimmy Buffett concert......"I like mine with lettuce and tomatoes, Heinz 57 and french fried potatoes, big kosher pickle and a cold draft beer, GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY, which way do I steer for my Cheesburger in Paradise."

cool! I was a hamburger for halloween last year too, though not as creative..I just glued felt onto cardboard and wore it around my neck.

AWESOME! This is so frickin cool. Seriously. If you were pro, you'd be patched.

Thanks . I wish I were pro, but that's not where I should be spending money right now.
Yeah, I want to be pro, but I don't have paypal and my parents sure as heck won't pay for it :D

I would suggest making the straps thicker.

Not a bad idea, but I was going for the cheapest shirt I could find in roughly the right length and color.
