Lately I have been making stacks of dresses out of recycled t-shirts. I am small so two large shirts make a dress. I start with a dark base and add a lighter contrast for flair, and widen her and taper there... I am looking at styles from the 1920 to the present, Olive Oil meets Audry Hepurn, easy to travel in and up to date for my active lifestyle.

Hiking Dresses came to me as a practical solution to living in conservative Cupertino California and needing to look put together while feeling comfortable. I enjoy wearing these 100% cotton dressy t-shirts in town or out on the trails.
