Repurp-dress

PillowcaseDressTake2

A lil sumpin that I sewed up this weekend for my sweet girl, aka another handmade thing that Esme doesn't want to wear, thank you very much.

But that's ok. I'm not at all offended, no sir. Because this dress made from a too-short shirt (cut off) and not-cute-enough-to-make-a-pillowcase-dress-but-don't-want-that-hem-to-go-to-waste can, when it's done being a dress, become a blouse-over-pants-type-thingie. And by that time she will probably be begging to wear it, or so I assume judging from her flippy floppy attitude as of late.

And I'm willing to wait. And maybe even make a few more in the meantime.

Love the dress - especially the embellishment around the hem - too cute! It is amazing how little girls can be so definite in their ideas from such a young age - when little boys couldn't care less what thery were wearing!!

I love it! Funny thing, my son is so much pickier than my daughter, and would no doubt wear your lovely frock!
I especially love the use of freezer paper stencil!

(makes a mental note to go through grown out clothes)

I know you have a lot of blogs on your list already, but check this one out. I didn't really look at it because it has the word "craft" in in and I don't do that, but maybe there are some ideas for you on it. http://www.myemmiecakes.blogspot.com/

Cute dress! I sure wish I still had time to sew dresses for my girls. But, I have a 20-pound excuse for not having enough time to do ANY of my hobbies lately. He's worth it, though! ;-)
