diy double t shirt sun dress

[sunglasses: Fendi (similar), earrings: DIY, shoes: Ash (similar)]
I love coming up with new ways to repurpose mens t-shirts. This sun dress is made by sewing 2 shirts together.  This is a great sewing project for beginners who want to make a dress but aren't quite ready to start using patterns. 

  • 2 mens t shirts (I dyed mine)
  • Elastic (1/2" wide and the length of your waist)
[Cut the 1st shirt off 7 inches below the armholes]
[Cut the 2nd shirt off right underneath the armholes- the hem at the bottom will be the hem of the dress]
[Turn both pieces inside out and sew together in the middle to form the waistband]
[Sew the elastic to the inside of the waistband]
[The neckline on my t-shirt was tight, so I cut it off, made the opening larger and sewed a 1 1/2 section of fabric on as trim]
