I made this dress out of a 6XL men’s shirt I found in a thrift store for $2.00
I just uploaded the tutorial in my blog on how I made it in case someone wants to try too :)

    I’ve always looked at the rows of lovely mens checked shirts in the charity shop, with a diesire to know how best to transform them. This is a perfect design. Thank you for sharing.
