18-year-old Isabella Villegas defended her 13-year-old sister Grace from a school dress-code violation in the most crafty, big-sisterly way we’ve ever seen.
Grace changed out of this off-the-shoulder shirt and into a different one after she said received some “not nice looks” and comments from teachers. Upon hearing about the supposed violation, Isabella responded, by making this school-approved t-shirt for her 7th grade sister that makes somewhat of a different statement:
my 13 year old sister was dress coded for her shirt today for “revealing too much chest and shoulder” so i made her a shirt to change into pic.twitter.com/NdRQws91HB

On the plain white t-shirt, Isabella wrote:
“Dress code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, is BS.”
Isabella told Grace to keep the shirt in her locker and to put it on if the school ever asks her to change her shirt again.
After Isabella posted a picture of the two shirts, people responded in differing ways. Some commented on the fact that the original shirt Grace was wearing is inappropriate for school.
@bellavillegas_ I don’t agree with dress code but if my daughter was 13 she wouldn’t be wearing that, let alone to school, it is low cut…

Some applauded Isabella’s creation and condemned the school’s dress code.
@bellavillegas_ the didn’t go ahead and dress code her for her jeans while they were at it? How dare she have rips above the knee 🙄

Others just wanted to know where Grace got her shirt.
The shirt’s scored so much attention that when some Twitter users asked where they could get one of the shirts, Isabella responded that she was figuring out a way for people to buy their very own.
Perhaps soon other victims of dress-code violations will have the opportunity to have that same Grade A response as these two sisters.
