Design > T-shirt wrap dress
materials: 8 T-shirts
description: When my book, ReMake It!, was launched, I couldn't walk into the party in a new dress. In the spirit of my book, I was inspired to use vintage T-shirts and reconstruct them to create and ReMake my very own dress. I love the vintage styling of wrap dresses, so I used t-shirts within the green color scheme to create this truly green dress. Each pattern piece was created from a different T-shirt.
Whenever I look at the dress, I'm reminded of the shirt I got in Malaysia with my brother that got stained, the shirt my mom gave me from my hometown of Mason, Michigan that shrank, and more. The dress has so many memories and is a great way to preserve those shirts that need a makeover.
