NEW DIY | How To Make a Colorblock Maxi Dress from T-Shirts

Wednesday, August 7, 2013

how to make a colorblock maxi tutorial via Kristina J blog

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 the colorblock skirt I saw at ASOS this spring. 

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.
