A white TALL TEE to be specific.

I know, nightmare right? Any DIY-ers in the house?

I acquired this shirt through my job. The other shirts I got fit me but somehow an extra large sized tee got in my pile. I’d prefer not to waste it, anyway I could make this work?
Lately I’ve just been wearing it with a cardigan and tights because it’s definitely long enough to be a dress. However, it’s summer and getting hotter so that’s just not working anymore!

Advice? Suggestions?
Thanks.

If you have a library nearby there are 3 books that have many ideas for tshirt reconstructions:
Generation T: 108 Ways To Transform A T-shirt
99 Ways To Cut, Sew, Trim & Tie Your T-shirt
Sew Subversive

Those may help. :)

Generally when a shirt is too big the easiest thing is to 1) make a design using gathering/ruffles/ruching since there is extra fabric to do so, and/or 2) cut it to be smaller, stitch it back together and use the extra fabric for embellishments like flowers or bows.

Other ideas:
do a cutout and make something drapey, like this Chictopian or this one
make it into a jumper dress like this-
keep it dress-length and cut the hem to be asymmetrical.
slice up the sleeves so they’re like flutter sleeves

I recently bought this racerback tunic/mini-dress thing from Urban for $5, and I realized that it’s basically a cotton tee with a deep scoop neck and an asymmetrical hem. The back is longer than the front, and the sides are like cut like wings. It’s probably easy to duplicate on a big tee.
