It started with some ugly clothes that my sister brought over. I looked at one off-white, xl, lacy shirt and thought, "I could make my daughter a dress out of that." I did, and liked it so much that I've basically set aside 2/3 of my wardrobe for doing recons with. Here are a few I did in the last 24 hours.  Grin

I made these today. Little plaid pants for my 1 year old! (Let's all ignore her messy face and undone hair, shall we?)

They started out as a shirt from Hot Topic that I bought about a year ago. I got bleach stains on it the first time I wore it, and it has been of little use since then.
Before:

Close up-ish:

(Please ignore the background. We're in the middle of remodelling our dining room, so the floors are shot and there's paint everywhere.)
And the back:

They're so cute on her! Can't wait for her nightmare before Christmas shirt to be clean so that she can have a little baby goth thing going on.  Roll Eyes (The leftover material is going to be used to make sister a skirt.)
Older sister prefers dresses. "Princess Leia dresses", in particular. In other words, ones that are flowy. And she has to have buns on the side of her head, too. So I took this shirt, which is an XL that was bought for this purpose at the Salvation Army (I've already started cutting it here):

And made this dress:

It's okay, but it has this lace up front, which she keeps pulling tight and then the neckline goes all wonky. If she would just leave it alone and be perfectly still at all times, it would be much better.  Undecided
So that's all for now. But I'm going to take a pic of the first dress I made and post that later. Smiley

They're both so cute, but I really love the Princess dress. Flowy dresses are so much fun to play in.  Wink
