Azalea - featuring BELAFARINROD

First of all: I am totally IN LOVE with die ärzte, an amazing band from Germany also known as die beste Band der Welt, for forever.
Again, I used a T-Shirt for this project – it was a present, but way too big for me, and I thought it would make a cool dress. Printed on the front is a photo of the three band members and their names are written on the back: Bela, Farin and Rod.
I wanted to add sleeves to this dress because I don’t really like sleeveless clothes, but without them it looks much better. Can’t wait for the summer, it’s too cold to wear it now.

Material Notes

white and black polka dot cotton fabric, a T-Shirt

    Thank you so much for your nice comments! They kinda saved my evening.

    To be honest, I got asked about my clothes just once so far, and that only because the person was with me when I bought the Batman T-Shirt. Sucks, but whatever. ;)

    I use T-Shirts all the time for new clothes. You have to buy less fabric and it’s a great way to worship bands etc. Or I stencil something on a plain T-Shirt to show my obsessions. I’ll post more creations soon. ;D

    This is such a great thing to do with a T-shirt. The fabrics you picked go just right, and it looks so original! No doubt people will be stopping you asking,“Wow! where did you buy that?”
