T-Shirt Wedding Dress
Have a dazzlingly white wedding day.
BY DONNA KROIZ AND LAUREN KROIZ
Until the late 19th century, brides generally bought the
fanciest dress they could afford and then wore it
throughout their marriage as an evening gown. With
the rise of mass-produced clothing, white became the popular
color — maximally impractical, it signified the owner would
wear the dress only once. Efficient women often married in
white and then dyed their dresses to wear again.
In the 21st century, there’s no need to choose between anti-consumerist values and looking cute in white on your wedding
day. Learn how to make an adorable, versatile dress using white
cotton T-shirts — comfortable, repurposed, and perfect for years
