This cute little girl is my great niece Audrey…she just turned two a few weeks ago, so I made her a few dresses.
This one I made with a plain white t-shirt from Wal-Mart ($2.94) and a piece of knit fabric from the thrift store ($2). I cut 1.5 inch wide strips of the blue fabric, cut the bottom off the t-shirt about 2 inches below the armpits.
I also cut another strip for the skirt, just guessing how long to make it…
I ruffled the skirt top and sewed it onto the cut off t-shirt. I made the ruffles around the bottom of the hem and around the neckline by sewing down the middle of the strips with a long basting stitch (it sort of gathers itself some and then you can gather it as much as you want to). Then I just sewed the gathered strips around the neck and around the hem. And that was it!
The little drama queen tried it on, fell out of the chair and then fussed the rest of the time we tried to take the pictures.
It fit her perfectly! Such a cutie pie!
I am linking to these great parties!
