So, having a son the size of the Jolly Green Giant and a toddler in need of a dress actually works to my benefit. Andrew goes through growth spurts, which means he outgrows all his clothes without totally wearing them out. A while back he got this shirt from my SIL's BF. He then promptly grew out of it.
So with a little online inspiration, a pair of scissors Simplicity Pattern 2684, and my sewing machine, I set out to transform it into a toddler dress.
First I cut it up....
To embellish it a little, I used this tutorial on rolled fabric flowers. I attached two to hair clips for her ponytails and arranged three into a broach for the front of the dress.
Hope you enjoyed it. Now you know how to use up old shirts and give them a new, and cuter, life. :)
