If you read my last post, you know it was Kids Clothes Week this past week. I'm so glad I participated, because I got a ton done!
In addition to the leggings I showed you here, here is another project I was able to complete for Kids Clothes Week: a toddler dress refashioned from two shirts and one skirt. This is one of the easiest refashions I've ever put together! As I was rummaging through my stack of stuff to refashion, I came across two shirts and one skirt that coordinated. I love the happy peach and pink colors mixed with the white in the Gap shirt. It makes me feel like spring is almost here.
If you'd like to refashion a shirt or two along with a skirt then read along to learn how you can do it too.
First, I cut off three inches from the bottom of the floral top. Then I cut off the bottom part of from the second shirt.
Next, I cut a piece from the white skirt 1 1/2 inches shorter than the shirt bottom and the same width as the shirt bottom. (Of course, I saved the rest of that skirt for another project.)
Now, line-up the shorter fabric (skirt) onto the wider fabric (shirt) and run a gathering stitch through both layers. Gather the fabric and pin onto the floral top. Sew through all layers and voila-- your dress is completed! The best part of this project was that in less than an hour I had a cute new dress to ship off to a granddaughter. If you try this, let me know. Okay? xoxo Grandma
