Little Girls Tank Top Dress

Found:  Cute ruffle tank top, size women's small...$2 (Goodwill)
Cute T-shirt top, size 4T...$1 (WalMart)
I cut the top off the tank and the bottom off the T-shirt and sewed them together.
It's even cuter than I thought it would be!!
I think my niece Elena will love it!!
What's not to love...glittery buttons and ruffles!
This was all that was left over!
Quite a deal for $3!

Adorable, great job!!

I too found a similar top while thrifting but wasn't wide enough to make a pretty ruflle skirt.

I had a problem with my linky party code. I thought it was set up as a thumbnail party but it wasn't. It's all fixed now but can you add your link again? I''m so sorry for the inconvenience. :( xoxo

Wow, this is such a clever idea. I have seen and thought of doing it the opposite way but this is a new way to look at it!

I am stopping by from Sumo's Market Yourself Monday, I would love if you stopped by and checked out my project :) http://xsurvivingmotherhoodx.blogspot.com/2011/03/digital-hybrid-flower-pomander.html

Kelli said...

very cute! I thought you'd used the ruffle fabric that's all the rage, but that's $15/yd. You came out way ahead and with almost no waste!

Jenn Erickson said...

Ellen, thank you so much for being a constant quality contributor to "A Little Birdie Told Me..." at Rook No. 17!

What a wonderful dress! You have a great eye for detail and design, and created an incredible dress on a dime! Love the ruffles!
