Change A Boring Shirt Into A Dress With Upcycle Me Crazy!

I had no idea what an Upcycle Dress was until I saw a little girl on Facebook in one.

Then I figured Natalie had to have one...or two.

She had gotten a school pride t-shirt and it was just...blah. It needed to be perked up a bit. So I sent the shirt to Upcycle Me Crazy and...




She (Tiffany) changed a boring t-shirt into a dress. She added the skirt and the arm fabric. Better, huh? (And no, I'm not being paid to post this, nor did I get the dresses for free. I paid for them, I just loved the results so I had to share!)


Yes, I made farting noises.




Natalie loves her school dress. When she wore it to school she said lots of people asked her if I made it. She said she laughed and explained that her Mommy doesn't sew.



I also sent in another t-shirt. How the process works is, you send in a large t-shirt and it'll be transformed into dress. This dress has a different skirt design. There are several to choose from, plus you can pick another arm look if you'd prefer. This shirt is from Gymboree, size 12.




I was making funny noises. The people walking past with their dog did a double take.

Natalie loves when a dress has a twirl-ability factor:


So if you have a t-shirt that you want to be made into a dress, check out Upcycle Me Crazy! The next time we go to Disney I am so sending in a Disney shirt to be made into a dress.


And now you know what an Upcycle Dress is.

You're welcome.

(Also, when they outgrow the dress, it can be worn as a tunic. So they last awhile. Bonus!)

  2. These are awesome! I'm going to have to figure out if that's something I can do. (not that well, of course, but my children are bound by genetic law to like and wear everything I make them!!)

  17. Aww!! That is seriously so cute--and definitely a great business idea for people to be able to get the look without having to actually do the sewing and crafty part. (I'm one of the people who enjoys sewing, I know that many don't!)

  18. Oh my gosh, if I were a little girl I would be SO thrilled to have one of my t-shirts turned into an awesome dress like that. Heck, I'd probably like a t-shirt dress now ;-)
