I chose the 2013 Pantone color of the year for my Halloween 2013 costume.
Sorry there aren't more pictures. I decided on this at the last-minute since I'm incredibly indecisive.
Step 1: Materials
- White fabric - I used an old sheet
- Liquid stitch, sewing machine, or sewing kit
- Black paint pen(s)
- Straight Pens
- Printed Lettering to trace - I've attached the pdf & Illustrator files for the lettering I used. Don't forget to adjust the size of your letting to fit you & change the color information to match the color of your t-shirt.
- Ruler or straight-edge & pen/pencil/chalk
Step 2: Prep your Shirt
I cut off the sleeves of my shirt, folded the cut edges under, and liquid stitched them. You can also sew them if you'd rather. I don't have a sewing machine handy, and I was tired of hand-sewing when I did this. The liquid stitch held just fine.
After that, I turned my shirt inside out, laid it on the ground, and put a dress that fits me like I wanted on top of it (make sure to center the dress so that your neck hole is lined up correctly). Then I marked the outline of the dress, pinned the shirt along that line, tried it on to make sure that it fit like I wanted, and sewed up the lines to make the over-sized t-shirt fit the same as my dress. After that I trimmed off the excess fabric. I ended up trimming off about 3 inches on both sides.
