The boyfriend shirt, now a summer dress

This project is fun.
Simply ask your man for an old dress shirt he no longer wants and transform it into a sexy summer dress you both will love.

There is no right or wrong way of making a shirt dress, you can choose to simply wear the shirt with leggins and a belt and flats.  If you want to actually make a dress, take in the extra fabric on the sides, sleeves, and back, as needed.
