Ever since I saw this dress on the web during Fashion Week season, I haven’t been able to get it out of my head, so I gathered all my DIY skills and decided to make it happen right at home.
I hope you can follow my steps, its actually a very easy DIY, although the whole stitching part can get tricky since you have to be VERY precise, but I recommend you to try it!

My trick was to buy a small mens white shirt, because it was already giving that “oversized/dress” look, the neon yellow fabric was a strike of good luck at the fabric store (you can use any color you like)…What are you waiting for? Time for some stitching!

Now I just need the weather to get better so I can give you outfit shots, or even better, I will take this baby to play in Santorini in May! :D

EDIT: A lot of you have asked me what happened to the pockets and truth is, I decided to make it without them so it wouldn’t get complicated.
You are also wondering about the yellow fabric, it is NOT lycra and it doesn’t have any stretch, I think its better this way and the quality of it seems better.
Oh and I have a SINGER sewing machine!


Desde que vi este vestido en la web, no me lo he podido sacar de la cabeza y como no tenia idea de conde conseguirlo, decidi hacerlo yo misma.
Espero que puedan seguir los pasos, la verdad esta muy simple pero recuerden que en la parte de las costuras, tienen que ser súper precisas, si no, quedara fruncido.

Yo compre una camisa para hombre en talla chica para que se viera mas como vestido y con mucha suerte encontré esta tela amarillo neón, pero tu puedes usar el color que quieras.
¿Que esperas? A coser se ha dicho :D

P.S- Mi maquina es SINGER para las que me han preguntado.

  1. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to
    start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet
    effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this.
    Also, the blog loads super fast for me on Safari.
    Exceptional Blog!

  3. Great DIY, Andy! I think it's absolutely okay that there are no pockets, because they often look bulky when not well made and that would destroy the clean chic of the dress. A question: Are you happy with your SINGER sewing machine, because I heard on the one hand that these are great machines, on the other that you should never touch one of these?!?!

  4. I saw some dresses like this one at zara, but the top was a tank top not a shirt.. anyway i will try your diy, nice :D

  5. This seriously looks amazing!! I love how it turned out, and it doesn't look to hard! I so need a sewing machine so I can try my luck, maybe with neon pink!

  6. wooow definitivamente eres mi idola en esto de la costurada! hehehee :D yo siempre he querido intentarlo, pero la verdad es que no me he animado! pero por lo visto es posible hacer cosas padrisimas!!! :D gracias!!!!p.d. esta pendiente tu dibujito!!!!! lo hare apenas me desocupe de un trabajote de dibujos que tengo! pero a lo mejor te dibujo con este vestido neon! esta muy lindo! espero ver que lo uses pronto!!!!!!

  7. Me encantaría saber hacerlo, pero no he hecho nunca nada ni parecido… como mucho coser un boton!

  12. This is one DIY I have to try. The neon is so perfect in contrast to the crisp white shirt. I love the idea of a shirtdress, but usually hat the bottoms because they look sloppy, so I'm very excited about this one!xx Kara
