To attach the straps, you can use a button or just tie on the straps. Buttons are fun because you can match the print on the shirt. If you are using a button, be sure to sew a buttonhole stitch
around the button holes on your straps. This will keep the button holes from stretching or ripping.
Tied straps are great, too because they are so quick.
- Use a different color t-shirt or ribbon for the straps to change it up a bit.
- Add a patch pocket to the lower front of the dress with the leftover shirt material.
- Try some more t-shirt surgery by turning a t-shirt into a tank top.
