So…on to the non-barbie, cute real-kid pictures! (last week felt pretty plasticy here on ye’ old blog)
I got a few skirts the other
day week at the Salvation Army 50% off sale-for less than $2 each-with the idea of refashioning them into dresses for the Sadester. This first one is made from a shirt that I thrifted ages ago-before I even sewed! wow! I don’t know how it escaped getting cut apart for so long.
Now, Sadie’s (and mine) least favorite. I love the print, just couldn’t get the straps to look right. I didn’t have enough fabric left to do anything besides a tiny spaghetti strap…so I did white straps. Maybe I’ll do the small strap-it might look better. I am probably too lazy to change it though.
I added a little ribbon bow to try and make up for the straps.
All in all-I love refashioning-half the work is done for you! hooray for that.
