Up-cycled Toddler Dress

So my family is getting ready for a yard sale this weekend, and after work today I decided to go through my closet and get rid of all my clothes that don’t fit after having my surro-twins…. ok, so maybe some of them haven’t fit in awhile, but anyways… I was about to throw a bright button-up shirt into the “sale” pile when I remembered a tutorial I had seen awhile back. I used this as the perfect excuse to abandon the yard sale prep and whip out my sewing machine!

Here’s what I started with… a stained button-up shirt:

Now after 2.5 hours of disassembling then re-configuring, some sewing, a little elastic, and serging, here is my Princess wearing the final product:

So now I’m off to do some laundry, and hopefully tackle the old clothes in my closet… this time without being distracted by a sewing project!

About Me:

I'm a 20-something working mother of a 9 yr old step-son, a 4 year old daughter, and a surrogate mother to twins born in Feb. '09. I love sewing gifts and clothing in my free time, and especially love sewing baby items. I am clumsy to a fault, a little too sarcastic at times, I put my all into everything I do 110% of the time... which isn't always the best thing! I try to be the best wife, mother, friend, sister, & daughter I can be on a daily basis.
