Polo Dress

I had an old polo shirt lying around, a men's 4XL. So I decided to turn it into something cute! I cut and sewed an A-line shape from the body of the shirt.

The top of the back, I cut straight across just below the collar, but I still had collar flaps on the front. I wanted to keep the nice edge from the original shirt, so I just folded under the collar, sewed it down on top of the original stitching, and trimmed off the excess. Finally, I cut four long skinny triangles out of the leftover fabric and sandwiched a pair of triangles together for each strap.

This dress was really easy to make, and it's super comfy!
