Let's face it, it seems like kids grow about a mile a minute and clothes that do still fit them, they end up getting a chocolate milk stain on them or they just plain out grow them.
With Spring here and Summer right around the corner (and hubby not back to his full hours of work) I decided that I would raid my kids closets and pull out anything that a. didn't fit them anymore and b. had some sort of stain on it.
So, with that in mind and being that both my girls looooove to wear dresses, I pulled out a few shirts, hacked them up, and made them into dresses.
Before (this onesie still fit my youngest in the chest and arm area but she outgrew the snap area):
Another after (I call this one her "jumping for joy" picture):
Second dress (also for my youngest)
Before (a nice white shirt that she had outgrown the sleeves and also has a chocolate milk stain on it)
Third dress (for my oldest daughter, still going to do a few more for her)
Before (and yes, it is a Valentines shirt and fabric but that's what she picked out that she wanted)
Oh, and total cost of project, FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The shirts were already in their closets and the fabric is all what I've had on hand that I've been trying to think of something to do with. woohoo!
