Longhorn Game Day Dress

I’m starting to wonder if I should have done a game day dress series (kidding. Sort of).

It’s fall and in the fall we attend a lot of football games. If you had asked me in high school if I’d ever like football, I would have scoffed. But then I married a football coach (who used to make me draw formations on napkins at dinner. Seriously) and now I love it – as long as I have a vested interest in rooting for one team or another.

Longhorn Game Day Dress - Melly Sews - DIY tutorial to make this out of 2 t-shirts #sewing #diy


Since we live in Austin and I graduated from The University of Texas, the Longhorns qualify as a team I have a vested interest in rooting for. And another team I needed a game day dress for.


This dress has pockets – and the way they were made is pretty interesting.

So this is me dressed for the season opener against Wyoming, which of course we won. Hook ‘Em!

Click HERE and I’ll show you how I made the whole dress.

    Well as a Baylor Bear, I might prefer different colors. 😉 You did a great job! Looks like a fun game dress. My Texas husband just came to look as well… But we are still Bears through and through! Have a great week!

    Oh my goodness, this.is.awesome! Well, minus the colors 😉 (We’re HUGE Nebraska fans). But super clever idea! It looks cute, comfy, & functional! Perfect for game days! Every Saturday in the fall I host a College Football Tailgate link party and would LOVE to have you come share this (and other other football posts you might have). http://www.momendeavors.com/2012/09/gameday-breakfast-sliders-college-football-saturday-tailgate-2012.html#
