Quick dress refashion


This is a photograph of Tara in one of her favourite dresses. The photo was taken when she was about 15 months old - she cried when she could no longer fit into it when she was 2.

It sat in my 'to do something with pile' for ages until I spotted it earlier this afternoon. A quick snip of the straps and a quick turn down of the front panel and a quick spot on the sewing machine and we have a new skirt for a girl who is very pleased!

So pleased that she decided to spin until she fell over! So pleased that she is going to wear it for her birthday tomorrow :)

Wahey! I can see it becoming a favourite again.
Perhaps you'll have to incorporate it into a quilt when she can't fit into it again ... or a bag?

What a lovely thing to do and a great idea. What a lucky girl she is to have a Mum like you. :-)

Lovely to see Tara's delight in her favourite dress regained! Like your security envelope fridge magnets on Etsy too. Best wishes.
