I found this pattern a few months ago. I shared it with my SIL, but didn't have time to sit down and make it. When she made one for her daughter (seen on her blog) I had to get my rear in gear and make one for Madison!
You take an "old" shirt that Dad doesn't wear anymore, and turn it into a dress for a little girl.
The back yolk of the old shirt becomes the bodice front on the dress.
And the button down front becomes the button up back of it.
The one I made tonight was just an easy, no frills one. I just wanted to make sure I could figure out how to do it. Next time I'll add a few more embellishments.
I'm embarrassed that I don't know who I got the link from originally. Whoever it was, THANK YOU! They're just DARLING!
