You Will Need:
A sewing machine
2 XL T-shirts of desired team
2 Elastic bands size 1 in x 1-1/4 Yards
1 Soft tape measure
1 Box of sewing pins
1 Safety Pin
1 Spool of Thread same color as t-shirts
1 Fabric Pencil
1 Pair of Scissors
In this example, there are two different colors of shirts used to distinguish between the bodice and the skirt. The red shirt will be referred to as T-Shirt 1 and the yellow shirt will be referred to as T-Shirt 2.
*Before starting, wash and dry the t-shirts if they are new. This will prevent any shrinkage after the dress is completed.
Next cut the shirts all the way across the top seam of the shoulders, cutting off the crew neckline as well.
Caution : Be sure to keep the fingers of the hand holding the t-shirt flat out of the way while cutting.
Choose which t-shirt you would like as the bodice of the dress and set the other three pieces of the shirts aside for later. In this example the front of T-Shirt 1 will be used to make the bodice.
