Oh how I love Halloween, what a great time of the year. I may be a full grown adult but I won't let that stop me from getting fully involved in the festivities. It seemed only fitting that I created a costume out of old t-shirts (old t-shirts... is there anything they can't be turned to?!).
My boyfriend sacrificed this Thin Lizzy t-shirt because it was covered in bleach stains, so it would have been thrown out otherwise. I actually turned it inside out as I didn't want the logo to show, and the green t-shirt was just one that I don't wear anymore.
I took a panel out of the green dress to create the slashed effect at the front, and I used the sleeves from the black t-shirt to make little sleeves. I then cut out long thin strips of green to tie around the sleeves and create bows.
I think the dress I've made looks suitable for a Witch costume (just add a witches hat and a broom!) but it's quite a versatile tutorial, you could apply this technique to different coloured t-shirts to create a variety of different costumes. For example, a red and black t-shirt combo could be a 'fallen angel' or devil dress depending on what accessories you add.
The full tutorial is available on my blog.
Happy Halloween refashioning!
