We’re starting this week off with a little something just for you! The One-Shoulder T-Shirt Dress by Anne at Wobisobi is easy to make, oh so comfy, and absolutely adorable. Wear it with a pair of tights and a cute bomber jacket this fall, or with heels and jewelry for date night. If you have two T-shirts and a sewing machine you pretty much have everything you need. While you’re at it, grab two sweatshirts to make a warm Sweatshirt Dress.
Check out the tutorial for the One Shoulder T-Shirt Dress after the jump…
One-Shoulder T-Shirt Dress
This dress is an idea I thought would be cute and easy to make for summer. Made out of two T- shirts, you can dress it up for a fun night out or dress it down for a day of shopping or a stroll on the beach. Very similar to the off the shoulder dress I did for Brassy Apple HERE
but with a twist.
- 2 T-shirts *I used a Large for the top and an Extra Large for the bottom.
- Sewing Machine
- Large Safety Pin
- Straight pins
- 4 studs * Hobby Lobby in the leather section.
First, I measured my top shirt with a dress I already have, to where I was going to put the tying part. Then I marked it.
#1 Shirt, I cut the top at my markings.
#2 shirt, I cut right under the arms( this will be the bottom part of my dress)
Put the right sides of both shirts together. Pin them with your straight pins.
Sew about 1 inch above where they meet.
Then turn the bottom part right side out,and sew an inch below where you sewed your first line.
Cut a small slit in the center of your channel.
From the scrap part of the shirt that you have left over, cut an inch wide strip.
Stretch it out to make a rope.
Attach the end of the string to a large safety pin, then weave it through the slit all the way around the shirt. Now for the one shoulder look. Mark a diagonal line from under one arm to the top of the other shoulder.
Cut on your line.
Hem a 1-inch hem around the place where you cut.
*You want to leave an inch channel so you can weave a knit string through it.
Stretch it to make a knit string.
Make a small slit at the top of your shirt, attach your knit string to a large safety pin and thread your knit string through the channel.
You could Dress it up even more by adding a pretty sheer ribbon or a sequin ribbon instead of a knit string. Now you can tie it up as tight or as loose as you want. I can not wait to wear this out with some cute strappy sandals.
Lots of <3,
