DIY: T-Shirt Flower Dress

T-Shirt Flower Dress

Technically this isn't a new DIY since this dress was one of the first things that I ever posted on this little blog when my Nikon and I were just getting to know each other, (;)) but I never put up the entire tutorial! In the beginning of my blog days, I used to post all of my tutorials over on Cut Out + Keep, one of my favorite crafting communities. (By the way, Cut Out + Keep just celebrated their 100,000th member! Holy cow that's a lot of crafters. Congrats to Cat and the rest of the team. :))

This dress is special to me in many ways because it was my first big blog project, I wore it in a trashion show, and holy Moses it took me forever to make. Today it feels more like an art project than a wearable piece-- the textures and the colors make it really stand out in the crowd. :)

I don't even want to know how much thread I used on this dress. A LOT. ;) If anyone is having a bit of trouble, this is the original flower tutorial that inspired me to make this dress.

Good morning! You're blog was recommended by my friend Amy from Mod Podge Rocks so I figured I'd better come over and see. Oh my, I'm so glad I did! This dress is AMAZING! Gorgeous! Do you find people want to touch the dress? (that could be odd, haha) Because I would! It's a textural piece of art! Can't wait to explore the rest of your site!

first amazing job! second thank you for posting the how-to. i am actually going to make 2 duvet covers for my little girls' new big girl room bunk beds using this technique. did you use all knit fabrics on the dress? does it wash and dry (in a drier) well? i'm going to use whites (tshirts, knit/jersey/fleece from the fabric store) so i can easily oxiclean or bleach out any stains my girls will create.

Hey Melissa! Thank you so much for your kind words! I love the idea for a duvet cover out of these! I did use all knit fabrics on the flowers. :) I've never put the dress in the washer, I've always hand-washed it. :)


Hope your day is going well!

Way beyond my fabric handling capabilities (seriously, a bad home ec experience in high school that left me scarred), but this dress is fabulous!
