Second Born Restoration

17 Feb

My daughter Sophia Joy is a second born. She is the sweetest thing you will ever meet. Totally laid back and smiles her face off.  Sophia’s wardrobe consists of hand-me downs from her older sister who is only 21 months older. I was looking at a hand-me down outfit she had on the other day and got to thinking. Just because she has to wear her sister’s older clothes doesn’t mean it has to look like the clothes have already gone through one child.

I took this pretty cute outfit that used to be Aleah’s and transformed it into a way cuter outfit for Sophi. The white onesie had some stains around the neck so I cut out a picture of a horse and sewed it onto the front, to hide some of the mess.

Then got some fancy pink toile with beads and sparkles and sewed it just below the waistband  (I sewed just below so I didn’t have to deal with the elastic).

The skirt is short enough that is doesn't get in the way when she is crawling

And she’s off to another adventure-

    Nice blog, Caitlyn. Your daughter is a doll! And what a fabulous idea. I remember how amazingly creative all the Belcher girls were – and still are.

    What you are doing is pretty awesome & extremely creative. I love the new little outfit with toto for Sophia. Can’t wait to see what ‘creation’ you come up with next!
