Air-dried laundry -- time to dry

This is an odd little question. I have no idea how I'd go about Googling it. I have an electric clothes dryer, so no personal experience.

If someone were hanging clothes (specifically an adult-sized cotton tee-shirts) out to dry on a sunny day with the temp in the 60s and very little wind, about how long would they take to dry? An hour, two? More? Less? My protagonist is trying to determine how much time has lapsed since the shirts were hung up. (The other garments in the laundry basket are still damp/wet.)

EDIT: Since it seems to make a difference, the laundry in question is drying in Kansas, in spring or autumn.

Thanks, everyone. I have a good idea of a believable guesstimate and what the factors involved would be. I really appreciate your help!
