A sundress made out of four of my dad's frayed old button-up work shirts.
Take that, rag pile!

I used an old swimsuit pattern my mom had from the seventies for the bodice (view B):

Wow, that is pretty.  It's so feminine and flowy, I can't believe it's made out of work shirts!

Absolutely love it! I am a big fan of the comfiness of old work-shirts. I usually use them as smocks for painting, but I like that you made something more feminine and fashionable! Looks very pretty and very comfy!
