Little Yellow Polka Dot Summer Dress

My adorable little niece was my model for this refashion.

Original 


What I did:

1. Cut the dress to her length (about 20 inches off), zig-zagged the edges and hemmed it.
2. Tapered in the bodice area to fit. 
3. Moved up the pockets. Unstitched and restitched into place.
4. Made a little belt out of the excess fabric.

Result! 



Side by side


This dress is great because it can be worn as a looser shift dress or with a little belt to be little more girly.

I take it, you brought up the pockets a bit higher as well for her?
If it wouldn't be for her smile, I'd probably steal it from her = 'pink envy' :-D
Weeell, she definitely looks muuuch better in it than I'd do = 'pink envy' here as well ;-) !

LG, Gerlinde
