On to the upcycling tutorial! You will require 2 t-shirts, in contrasting colours. One of them needs to be quite large to give you enough fabric to make a dress that isn't horribly revealing! My boyfriend sacrificed this Thin Lizzy t-shirt because it was covered in bleach stains, but that will be disguised by flipping it inside out.
2. Take the top layer of your dress, and cut it into 3 as shown in the photo (I've flipped my t-shirt over to hide the logo and bleach marks). The centre panel needs to be at least 4 inches wide. Only do this with one of the dress layers, not both.
Here is the finished costume; just add a witches hat and a broom and you've got yourself one very sexy Halloween costume at a fraction of the price of a store bought costume. 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. Use your imagination... go wild it's Halloween! As always, if you have a crack at this tutorial, please do share your results, I love to see what people come up with.
Happy Halloween refashioning!
