T-Shirt Recycling Part 1!

Added Jul 21, 2012

by ajtak7171

Vienna, Austria






This dress is made out of three t-shirts that I sorted out from my closet. For some reason, I just don’t really wear regular t-shirts at all. But I have been wanting to make some jersey dresses for summer – they feel so great, just one piece of clothing, no double layers at the waist that give extra warmth when it isn’t wanted… and you throw it into the washing machine like a t-shirt, don’t even have to iron it… This was a super quick project and I’ll be making many similar ones very soon :-)

      Thank you! I posted some step-by-step photos on my blog. It isn’t a paper pattern, this is something you make on your dress form (or yourself) and it greatly depends on the shirts you are using… I was hoping the inspiration would be enough ;-)
