The incredible design even has pockets!
Since the start of the pandemic, a lot of us have taken the time to indulge our favourite hobbies. Some of us have been making sourdough and banana bread, others have taken up a new fitness regime - but one woman's quest to sew is by far one of the most impressive.
Taking to Facebook, an Australian woman, Selika, shared "an one in a million dress" that she sewed - using only $1.50 Kmart tea towels.
The post to the Kmart Home Decor & Hacks Australia Facebook group immediately went viral, gathering over 500 comments in just hours.
Selika chose a pink Australiana-print tea towel, covered in big white flowers with cockatoos sitting in branches.

"No way I’m letting this beautiful prints being just a tea towel," she wrote, explaining that it took 11 $1.50 Kmart tea towels to create her garment.
The simple dress features a fitted sleeveless bodice then connected to a knee-length full skirt. Selika shared an image of the completed top part, as well as the finished product. She also posted a video, showing her sewing process.
Fellow group members were blown away by her resourcefulness and talent, many asking her for the sewing pattern.
"Omg you are so clever. You made a beautiful dress. I wish I had your talent," one person wrote.
Another joked: "Creative and talented! I might need whole stocks of tea towels from 3 different Kmart stores to make one of my size! Looking gorgeous girl!"
