Hi all!

I got three size large mens' shirts for $1 each at Walmart because I thought the fabric was super awesome.  Any idea on what I could make if I take the shirts apart?  I was thinking some sort of clothing item for me (approx. ladies size 10-12), but I'm not sure what.  They had more shirts that I could go back and buy if I need more fabric.



Any help would be appreciated!!!

Thanks!!!

They would make a super cute dress. There are a couple of mens shirt tutorials out there that would work well

A skirt, no question at all. You should have no trouble cutting panels from both the front and back, and the length ought to be ok (unless you're very tall). I'd bet 3 shirts would make a size 12 skirt.

It really is a great print. I would've bought an armful of those shirts too. What kind of fibre is it? Rayon? Polyester?

Thanks y'all! Panels are a good idea.  I'm so stuck in the patchwork world lately that I'm having a hard time envisioning anything that doesn't involve a bunch of tiny squares :-)  I'll look up the skirt tutorials... I don't think I have enough talent to make a dress quite yet, but thanks for the idea! 

The shirts are 100% polyester.  Not my favorite, but for $1 I'll take what I can get! LOL
