Via Shabby Apple:
Originally I thought I would make this out of sweatshirt material but had NO CLUE that material was so hard to find. Like crazy hard. Well, I then just bought some fleece on super remnant clearance at Jo-Ann's and started cutting. I used existing shirts I had on hand and made a pattern. Then I would put it on inside out, re-pin, and adjust. Total trial and error. More error than trial, really, if I am going to be honest.
Here are the two dresses that I came up with:
|The pin on the collar is my Nana's. The bow on the other shoulder is a thought, not sure how I feel about it yet.|
Overall, I had a bunch of compliments on the dress and I am quite proud of myself. Which must have inspired Charlotte to start designing her own dresses and handbags...
Yes, the above picture is her in her Christmas pj's on under the Halloween dress. The girl is prepared!
