So my hubby is picky when it comes to boxers/underwear... and he got these as a gift a few years ago.. I think he may have worn them once and then they have sat in the dresser drawer ever since. I was doing the typical spring cleaning yesterday and going through all of our clothing and came across them and thought wow this pattern/print is cute.. maybe I can make something for DD out of them! and I did just that! I made her a lil' sundress for the summer time since she doesn't have alot for summer clothing yet... it was super easy and turned out better than I expected! although I think the straps could have been a bit further apart/closer to the center! I don't sew very often and haven't made many items on the machine, but I think I did pretty good on this- as it was extremly EASY!! Surprisingly Hubby think the dress is adorable also!!

C&C welcome!
Heres DD modelling it for us!

She is adorable and the print really suits the dress.

Fabulous! I am getting in to the repurposing of old clothes/materials and so I love to see things like this. You did a great job and it looks adorable on her!
