Here we go!  Thanks for the tutorial Vegbee.  It was very easy to follow and I got to try soe new things.  This is a shirt that I had, but um the placement of the hands wasn't very shall we say condusive to wearing in public?  But she loves it.  It is actually dyed with clay, and the blue was from some knit I had laying around.

The front:  (Please excuse the Red-Eyes, new camera.  Still learning it)



The back with the shirring:



And The Infamous Action Shot:



My little BaBoo and her new dress.  It also has a head tie for her hair that would take an army and a thousand frolicking kitties to get her to wear right now.

I really like the elastic gather at the back, it makes the dress look really good.

This is really awesome. I want to take my husband's old tired concert tee's and make baby dresses out of them! Too bad we don't have any kids to speak of yet.  Sad Oh Well. Maybe in a few years.
Also, the fact that its a Danzig shirt reminds me of this Aqua Teen Sketch: http://youtube.com/watch?v=fradBE7y-QY

I love it.

Ha!  Thanks arimethia for the link.  I find Danzig hilarious yet strangely appealing.  Its better if you avoid actually listening to the lyrics  Grin
