This little dress had a very humble beginning…
as a t-shirt of mine! I loved Kojo Design’s dress refashion, and decided to try it out myself! It’s the first dress I’ve made for my little one, and while it isn’t perfect, I love it, and so does she!
It’s also the first time I’ve sewn with a knit fabric. It wasn’t as scary as I thought :).
My husband came home from work yesterday with some shirts his company had given him, and two were too large; he was going to give them away, but I said, “Wait, I can make another dress!” He thinks I’m a little crazy. Or a lot. Either way, there are more little dresses in my future! And I’m saving him lots of money. That part he appreciates, and takes the crazy along with it :).
I took pictures as I sewed, so I’ll work on a tutorial for this little dress, in case you’d like to do some upcycling yourself!
In the meantime, check out these places the red ruffle polka-dot dress is partying this week!
