So the steps for making this dress from 50s are shown on the picture bellow. First step is to turn inside up the t shirt and draw the lines to form a dress, measure your dimension and add a little bit more on both sides, or other solution is to take some real model and put it on it and draw by the edges as we already done in some previous projects. In this project we are going to make tube dress so it is a bit flair to the hips.

step1

Next cut of the sleeves and the top of the t shirt, so you get material only from the body part. Sew it on the marked lines and you get the base of the dress. Make the measure for the upper top part of the dress and cut it by making oblique edges. Just as shown on the picture

step2

And connect them as is shown on the picture bellow.

step3

Sew the points of the collar together to get a band. Add this at the top of the dress.

step4

Pin the band inside of the tube dress and sew it down with a zig-zag stitch.Folded over and sew it on the top of the collar again.

Make the measure for the shoulder strap from and cut two equals parts and sew each on the both sides so you get the v look connecting on the neck.

step5

Some other examples of DIY T Shirt Dress remodeling gettign same look with other t shirt are shown beloow. If you have some extra material, or the dress is too short you can always add and make some extra twirly parts just as shown on the picture
