Upcycled Love

1. totally vintage shirt from Honolulu
2. white cotton tee stained near the hem
3. elastic thread
lovely vintage inspired t-shirt dress

This is a 100% up-cycled creation. Grace loves a t-shirt dress, and that's good for me, because I love to make them!

I wish I had a picture of the Hawaiian shirt before I cut it off! I removed 2 pockets on either side before cutting straight across at the arm pit seam
