Blue Shirt

27 Apr

This was my first attempt to make a dress out of a shirt.  It was back in December before I had a plan to make all the kids clothes or become a blogger =)  My life was simpler back then but I wouldn’t change my resolution and the blog has allowed me such a wonderful outlet.

I made this shirt using the method of tracing one of her dresses so it was the right size.  One problem I had with this dress was-when I tried it on Aleah the neck was way too big.  I had to use some of the leftover sleeve to fill in the neck so it would fit.

My favorite part about this project is the empire waist from the shirt turned into a ruffley skirt for the dress.

Aleah wore this dress to see her Auntie Lina graduate college.
