from huge t-shirt to cute little dress

Added Nov 3, 2008

Concepción, Chile






I found this huge long sleeve brown t-shirt in the attic, and with a little (a lot) of inspiration from various flickr I made it into this dress, later i added pockets because i hate don’t having a place to put coins for the bus :D

And even later i added straps, it is a little unconfortable for me to wear strapless tops (small bust i guess :P) I bought some extra jersey for the braided straps (idea from Threadbanger)

Material Notes

old t-shirt, some lace, extra 20 cm brown jersey for straps.





bananafanamomari’s flickr , she has very cute tops, all recycled
