I decided to go thru my bin of to-be-refashioned clothing and came across this old maternity shirt.
I cut off the bottom portion to use and envisioned an empire waist dress for my 17 month old.
I grabbed this top of hers that has some stains I can’t seem to get out.
I sewed the skirt together (my daughter is tiny so I only needed the front portion of the shirt but you could easily use the whole bottom portion).
I chopped off the sleeves (stained) and bottom half of the shirt.
I sewed the shirt to the skirt.
I cut off the old shirt sleeves and resized them to add to the dress.
Added a bow to the back of the dress.
Lastly, I needed to cover the stains on the front of the shirt. I opted for ruffles! So I took a piece of the old shirt and made a stitch down the middle (widest/furthest stitch settings), making sure to leave long threads on the ends. Then I pulled the treads to ruffle.
And here’s her new dress!
