I found craftster from a diaperswapper link to this thread today http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=170402.0
and in a couple hours this old shirt of my late grandmothers with some staining on the collar
became this adorable dress for my 3 year old

This is beautiful! And what a great way to keep a piece of your grandmother current and used! And your daughter looks like she loves it!

I love the colors and style of the new dress.

sewnotcrafty, you better change ur user name....what a great result!!  I've seen it done w/mens shirts, but that one looks much simpler.  Well done! Cheesy

Very nicely done. I like that you incorporated the buttons (or snaps?) into the dress.  Did you keep the pocket tabs as well?  I couldn't really tell.
