My girls were invited to a “tea party” birthday party and I wanted them to have something new to wear. I rummaged through my stash and found 6 dinner napkins. I got them at a thrift store : $1 for 6 dark purple satin-y napkins. I’m not really into that sort of thing at the dinner table, but I knew it would be a good addition to “THE STASH” especially since the edges were finished.
I grabbed some white t-shirts from the girls wardrobes and added the napkins in two different ways. The girls pick out flowers for the top, and they went to town digging through my flower stash. They are glued on with fabric glue and have held up great in the wash.
I like this style of dress the best; two napkins were joined together, then folded in half, gathered and sewn on the top of the shirt. Almost like a “balloon” skirt.
For the other dress, the napkins were left at full length (12" by 12"), gathered and then sewn underneath the shirt.
