The Mickey material was a $2 2nd hand bed sheet .  The lace was given to me and the shirt was .25 at a g sale.  It was my first time with pleating.  I altered the boys undershirt with taking in the sides, gathered shoulders, lace at the bottom and reverse applique. The girls like it and I am kinda proud of how it turned out and I have lots of material left to make something for my other little ones.   Grin







Thanks!

Thanks ladies! My oldest daughter always gives me heck when I "just wing it" and it ends up NOT getting worn bc it's THAT bad.  LOL, I feel kinda vindicated with this one.  Cheesy

I love it!  What did you use for the reverse applique as a stabilizer (if any)?  I want to try that technique.

Thanks! I didn't use a stabalizer.  I just went slow and hoped the best and really didn't have any problems.  I did make sure I used a ball point needle, though. Smiley

You definitely rocked it! Smiley Looks like your kiddo thinks it was a success, too. Great job at repurposing.
