Basic long sleeve t-shirt from Target, ladies T-shirt, scraps of fabric, buttons.
What was your inspiration?
I was very sick a couple of weeks ago, and while I was trying to rest I kept on getting ideas and pictures of this dress in my head, so I had to crawl out of my bed, get the tees to see if they will work together, check if I had matching thread and fabric for the tie, and only then I could go to sleep. This dress haunted me haha When I cut up the U2 t-shirt my husband got me, he said I had vandalised the most expensive article of clothing I had ever owned hahaha However when he saw our Little Monkey run around in her new 'vandalised' dress he said it 'actually looked very cute on' hahaha
What are you most proud of?
Cutting up my special t-shirt (I mist admit it was too small to wear so it sat in my wardrobe for the past 6 years). I did not stuff up stitching. AND my sweetest husband said the result was cute :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you can't sleep because some project is haunting you - just do it hahaha
