Hey guys, I have an oversized Zelda tee that I'd really like to make a dress out of.
Have any of you ever made a dress out of a band tee or large t-shirt?

normally i just cut the neck off so it's off the shoulder, and take off most of the sleeves, and either belt it or just let it sit depending on my mood. but i'd be curious if there's a better way of doing it to be honest!

WONDERLAND ATTENDING HOGWARTS,
b)if you can sew cut down the back in a u shape and use that material to make bows and either only do it at the top or if you want a lower back do it farther down and make the bows skinnier to bring the "dress" together tighter.
look at these for guidance/inspiration:
also cut the sleeves and neck like Hannah said! Good luck.

UNDER THE CORK TREE,
I usually take the tshirt and cut the sleeves off, turn it inside out, sew a seam from the shoulder down the length of the shirt on both sides (making it like a tube), slit the top of the shirt where the collar hole is, fold each of those sides down and sew straight across (almost hemming-esque) giving it a nice edge and then flip it rightside out and have a lovely tube tshirt dress!
You also can then cut two strips from the leftover sleeves and sew them on the top as straps

I just get an oversized shirt, trim and sometimes fold the sleeves. Then cut the sides and sew them back together to your size and fit.

Oh wow, what a great link. I'll have to try that sometime.
i have a male top, that is long enough for a dress. with no alterations.
sometimes worn with a belt.

This one's a long shirt I got from my aunt. You should probably go with a big belt and boots!
