Read all of the rules very carefully, failure to follow them could result in disqualification of your submission.
•Your design must be inspired by Gracie's Gowns (how your gown makes you feel, how it has helped you on your medical journey, butterflies, a hospital looking gown, etc.).
•Your design should include the words "Gracie's Gowns" (although not mandatory).
•Reproduction of works of art is not allowed, as it might infringe on the original artist's copyright.
•T-shirt color can be either black or white.
