Double Double T-Shirt Dress

Post image for Double Double T-Shirt Dress

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best, and some ideas are so simple, yet so innovative, it’s inspiring just to think about them. What am I going on about here? Well, Ben from  Take Off Your Clothes and I did a little barter/exchange, and out of it I got this lovely double t-shirt dress.  Quite honestly, I thought the t-shirt was figurative, like cotton jersey is t-shirt material, hence the t-shirt dress. But no, this dress is actually made up of two tees sewn together, the top one, worn upside down (something I’m no stranger to) and the bottom one is the skirt, and the sleeves pockets! Just genius! The only thing I would do is maybe shorten the dress a little, but then again, I’m happy to sport the below the knee skirt for once again, minis are great, but I like the variety. All in all the dress is great, comfortable, versatile, flattering and well-made. I can already tell this is going to be a dress in my regular rotation!

(and yes, this dress is certainly bike-friendly)

This dress arrived last Friday. Wore it to Beethoven in Millennium Park. Now it goes to smART symposiums in London and Paris. I do not rock it. It rocks ME. Serious, serious dress joy.

You look FABULOUS in this dress. It’s nice to see it on a (familiar? dirty…) body to see how it’d fit people. It’s so flattering and cute, and god, I bet so cozy….

❤wendy… i saw you!
❤sheena..yes, i was wondering how it would look in real life, it’s quite a nice suprise when it looks better on a human than a dress form
❤ashe..haha dirty body? wow, you’re racy today!

leigh August 18, 2009 at 12:15 pm

You look great Jennine! I had clicked on the “take of your clothes” link a couple of days ago, and was intrigued by that dress. But now…seeing it on…I love it. I think you may have convinced me to buy one!
