I’m thinking of having a little sew-along for the shirt from yesterday’s post…What do you guys think about that? I’m excited about it! More details to come!

Sadie has been on this kick lately…she wants to wear dresses every. single. day.
Be still my heart! Oh darn, right?
So I hopped to and made her this little number.
I made it from a thrifted skirt (check out the before at the bottom of the post), which cost a whopping $2 or something. That kind of refashioning deal makes me giddy! ( I know, I have a problem)
The label on the skirt said it was from Saks 5th Avenue (a LOOONG time ago, I’m sure), so Sadie is wearing high fashion?
I don’t know, I’ve never shopped there.
So, back to the dress. It was pretty simple-and my favorite detail is the little ruching on the sleeves and bow. I thought that up late one night and have been looking for a reason to use it ever since.
It closes in back with a wooden button from the original skirt, and elastic loopy.
Here’s the before.
