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