|Zola got a dress and matching knit pants (from an old t-shirt)|
made from the scraps of my tunic fabric. My niece liked the fabric,
so I bought more, and she got a summer sundress... can you
say "Mother-daughter"? or maybe "Aunt/Mother/Daughter"???
|I purchased a beautiful vintage golden yellow linen |
damask tablecloth at an estate sale. It became dresses
for my nieces Zola and Kelsey. The flounced pants
were made from a vintage lace tablecloth.
|Back view of the dress and pants. This outfit is |
so much cuter on the little girls. The pictures do not
do it justice. This was a purchased Butterick
dress pattern. I will be using it for lots of dresses!
|Back view of the cape!|
|I think the contrasting striped pockets make these extra fun!|
|This lime green and yellow hoodie was purchased at the |
local thrift shop for $1. The pants were made from the
scraps of a ladies x-large knit top... also purchased at the
thrift shop for a dollar. Results? Pretty cute outfit for pennies!
|I made THREE of these...found the pattern on|
AllFreeSewing.com... you start with a boy's
t-shirt and use the main part of the shirt for the
dress. The sleeves are cut from the sleeves of
the tee-shirt. What MAKES this dress is the
red ric-rac trim on the sleeves and the white
trim at the hem. The pattern used plain white
trim, but I had plenty of ric-rac, and chevron is so
IN now that I decided to use what I had. A red and
white polka-dot bow completes the dress. Pretty
cute and comfy for the Fourth of July... right?!
I have so many ideas... and a closet-full of fabric - and still I sit and drool over several online fabric shops' offerings. My cousin Natalie gave me a wonderful new book for my birthday... One-yard Wonders... and I cannot wait to try out some of the cute things that are featured. Stay tuned... I'll be back to "share" again soon!
