This dress was inspired by a trip to an American Apparel store with my friends. When I saw the racks of cheaply made dresses in t-shirt material selling for fifty dollars (!), I had a lightbulb moment! I went home, chopped up a handful of my oversized baggy shirts and pieced together this comfy sundress. It took about twenty minutes, and I’m a slow sewer!

Material Notes

4 old T-shirts!
