4th of July Dress

So . . . Dana MADE me do it . . . Using her pattern and instructions, I made a dress for my daughter out of her Warhol Dress.

I turned this men's shirt into a 6-12 month dress for my daughter. I fits her perfectly except the shoulder strap (the one that doesn't tie) is too loose, so I need to shorten that. Otherwise, the length and shape is perfect. It looks adorable on her.

I applique'd stars on the dress with wonder under. After the white neck line was added, it needed something else to help tie the white all together. I also used red thread to top stitch around the stars.

I also did three rows of topstitching with red thread on the neck tie as well.

  2. Great job. It's super cute. I wish I could sew well. I'm not very good at sewing, I need more practice, a teacher and lots of patience.

  6. Wow, what a great upcycle idea! I wish I had daughters to sew that for. Maybe I'll have to take Kelli's idea and make one for one of my neices.
