color blocked

There's about a dozen different tshirts that I just don't wear that often. Or at all. But the Sentimental Pack Rat in me can't bear to get rid of them for, well, Sentimental reasons. usually. :-p It's ridiculous.

But the SPR in me doesn't mind cutting these aforementioned tshirts up and resewing them, so that's what I did.

Into a dress. A casual every day type dress.

I still have to wear a slip and tank under it though, which is sorta annoying, but oh well. I'm almost always cold anyways, unless I'm outside.

 Excuse the awkward wrinkles and even more awkward I-just-woke-up expression. (I was basically home alone today, so I got extra sleep.) :-D 
And the awkward expression is from Seth's Camera's TWO SECOND timer. maybe there's a way to change it.

But seriously? I can hardly run across the room and turn around in two seconds, there's no way I could manage to move my facial muscles during that time too. ;)

Anyways. Wearing this dress away tonight, and earlier I went outside for 20-30 minutes so now I have a slight awkward farmer's tanline that looks like this: / instead of _ because of the sleeves.

Such is life. Also, dumb hair.

I'm eating a banana with my favorite peanut butter, topped with milk chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. (could've skipped those.)

Just thought you'd want to know.


  1. I have to say I LOVE this dress. I'm usually not a fan of jersey knit dresses, but this one is AWESOME! I think I may have to go to the thrift store on 50cent t-shirt day to gather the material to make my own! (Would you mind if I totally copied you?) Thank you for the brilliant idea! :)

    1. Haha, of course I wouldn't! Thanks for the kind words. :D

  2. This is pretty genius right there. I would have never thought of that, and it's so simple, so on trend. I don't know how to sew (but I'm dying to learn!), but maybe i can get my mom to make something like this for me, perhaps with different stripes and patterns. Kind of excited to go to a thrift store and pick out shirts for this project :)
