How To Make a Colorblock Dress from T-Shirts by Kristina

Thursday, August 15, 2013

Sometimes a favorite piece is just too comfortable to throw away. I didn't want to get rid of my perfect fit tee from the GAP so I decided to up-cycle three extra large men's polo shirts from Goodwill to create a dress inspired by this colorblock dress

Chic Girl's Tip: Anytime you plan to up-cycle jersey knit pieces, wash and dry the clothes before cutting them for your projects. For this project, I used the largest shirt as the bottom layer and smallest for the top to make sure the shape of the skirt portion was a-line.
