I hit up Salvation Army's 50% off everything sale for things to recon. I originally picked up this shirt thinking I'd do another cheytown...and the pants were cute, but I didn't have anything specific in mind. But when I got home and saw them sitting side by side, I just knew they had to be made into this peasant dress! I used my own pattern...the skirt is a full circle when laid out flat.  Very twirly for my active little princess!  Grin



The originals:



I made bloomers out of the original shirt sleeves like I did before...anyone interested in a tute? I posted the tute in a new thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=245678.msg2717378#msg2717378
