Repurpose girl peplum top & cardigan

Hello all!

Do you like tee shirt? It's a favorite item of mine to do a refashion project. Since I can not easily found the source of good knit to sew for my little girl. The good tee is a best canvas for me.
In this top, I've start with a simple white tee in size XL. Using a Pippa peplum top pattern and personalize it with tulle skirt part, gold trim and sequin bow. Here is what I got for my girl.

Tulle skirt part gives it a good spin

Fit for play time
Another top is made from my good old cardigan. Using V-neck cardigan pattern, I added lace trim and collar for girly sense.

Both are clever and adorable! I heard when a little girl spins around that means she really likes the dress she has on or in this case the shirt. Great job!
