I think the dress would work. A slip underneath would help resolve the sheer issue.

Keep up the great works.

Happy thoughts,

It is very pretty, though.

DonnaFashMerch writes: Cute idea but I am not so sure it will work. You didn't take into account for the grainline. This dress will be stretch it's length when you wear it for more than 1 hour. Even with the vertical seams. If not all the dress, parts will stretch vertically. When you cut and use the body of a tshirt that way, the stretch goes vertically instead of horizontally like on a tee shirt.

LauraMcFall writes: I would have to add a non-transparent/opacity factor somehow - either an all-in-one briefer and/or slip underneath, or beefier t-shirts or an overlay of some sort. I also see some great possiblities for casual dresses made from tie-dyed t-shirts, thrift store finds, etc...
