Ive been making my girls outfits from my old shirts or quarter finds at the garage sales. And this one is so far one of my favorites.
The top of the shirt is made from an x-large womens shirt with a crown on the front, its funny how a shirt i would never wear turns into such a cute top for a 2 yr old. The bottom of the top and the pants are from a long sleeve dark grey womens shirt, the sleeves are the pants and most of the shirt turned into the skirt part. The front of the crown shirt it what i turned into sleeves and the back i cut into strips to make the ruffles  for the pants and top. Ok so here it is...

and my daughter 'posing'

and a close up on my girl

love to hear what you think!

Thats great! Was it hard to resize the collar/sleeve area? You did a very professional-looking job. Did the crown already have those stones, or did you add those? I like the colors, too.

Fabulous! I love the ruffles. Way to go, using old shirts to make such cute kids' clothes!

This makes me want to go through my mom's closet and use some of her, ummmm, "interesting" purchases.  Wink

thanks for the nice comments
i didnt add the stones they were alredy there! And i just used one of her shirts to measure the pieces after i cut apart the shirt. The hardest part is making sure the head hole isnt to small cause i do not want to mess with buttons and all that. I just try and use all the finished edges from the original shirt so i trick people into thinking i am a professional Wink, otherwise my sewing skills are really lacking and it would show!

hehehe too funny! Looks like you sew pretty good to me!
So you just totally cut it apart, compared/measured, resew? Sounds so easy, but yours looks so good-can it really be that easy?
