I've just found a post I had saved but forgot to publish *facepalm* It's quite old now and I still haven't finished it off yet *must get motivated!!* It's finished enough to wear though so I figured I'll finish off later.
I looked through my refashion pile (which btw seems to be getting bigger not smaller! How does that work? Must refashion more!) and found this old shirt that Paul gave me a while back. He didn't really like it on so he happily donated it to me.
I decided to make a little girl's dress out of it. I was inspired by this tutorial by Girl. Inspired. I decided I didn't want to do the shirring along the waist (didn't want to...find shirring impossible...whatever lol, same difference in my house). I cut it to be a quite fitted, knee length a-line dress, unpicked the collar and restitched, then added puffed sleeves for which I used this tutorial at MADE.
I have yet to finish the bands on the sleeves but I need to find some plain black shirt material first so I'll be charity shopping/Primark-ing it next time I'm in town to find some. Seems a shame to buy a whole shirt just to make two little sleeve bands so I might have to use the rest of the black shirt to make another smaller dress and use leftovers from this one so my two babies can match :) Cute!
