Hey guys, I have an oversized Zelda tee that I'd really like to make a dress out of.
Have any of you ever made a dress out of a band tee or large t-shirt?
Post your DIYs + Pics.
Thanks! :)

normally i just cut the neck off so it's off the shoulder, and take off most of the sleeves, and either belt it or just let it sit depending on my mood. but i'd be curious if there's a better way of doing it to be honest!

I usually take the tshirt and cut the sleeves off, turn it inside out, sew a seam from the shoulder down the length of the shirt on both sides (making it like a tube), slit the top of the shirt where the collar hole is, fold each of those sides down and sew straight across (almost hemming-esque) giving it a nice edge and then flip it rightside out and have a lovely tube tshirt dress!

You also can then cut two strips from the leftover sleeves and sew them on the top as straps

I just get an oversized shirt, trim and sometimes fold the sleeves. Then cut the sides and sew them back together to your size and fit.

This one's a long shirt I got from my aunt. You should probably go with a big belt and boots!
