I started out with an adult's size small strapless hi-low hem shirt. When I grabbed it out of the bin at the thrift store, I new immediately that I would turn it into a summer dress for my toddler. Then I dropped it in my sewing room and forgot about it for months.
|Tried it on for size. It was a little too big to use as-is.|
It turns out that I had the perfect size and color of ribbon to use for straps!
|I didn't accidentally stab her with a pin!|
After pinning and measuring, I realized that if the straps were short enough to look right, then the top hem of the shirt was uncomfortably high in her arm pits. So I folded the sides and back down and quickly sewed it down so that it would fit more comfortably.
|It's going to be a perfect summer dress for her to wear next year.|
|Hamming it up.|
|I think she likes her new dress.|
