Ugh, my dresser was overflowing with clothes I just don't wear anymore but are too cute to do away with so what to do what to do? Eh, cut 'em down to size and stick 'em on my little monkey.
There used to be a ton of pics in here but recently I decided not to post images of my kids online in the interest of preserving a bit of future privacy for them. Something that will be in short supply by the time they are teenagers I think. Sorry about the misleading title, lol, there were So man dresses that summer! I'll add pics for a few more recent dresses Smiley.

Very cute! Both the clothes and your charming model. I especially like the edging used in the second picture. Great idea and lovely work.

Thanks guys!
I was trying to figure out how to make a tute but I snip and sew without a pattern and they are all different depending on how much fabric there is and where I can cut things to fit. I seriously just eyeball the sleeves and such most of the time and hope for the best!
I will tell you that I steal every nifty thing I can, finished hems for the bottoms and sleeves, gathers, style lines, cut off the ribbing and use it again, etc.
I don't know how to show you what it is I'm doing so you could repeat it but I'll try. I've got a few more that are in progress now and that Is the current Craftster challenge so... Just gotta get to them.

Thanks guys! I'll try to work out a tute when I get home. I have a few more pieces already cut out but I'm sure there's at least one tshirt left to sacrifice to the small girl's wardrobe.

Tell me what you want to see most, length, sleeve style, extras like gathers, pockets etc.

Wow!!!

So wonderful . . . I have tons of stuff like that lying around but I'm always afraid to try and repurpose it.  Great job on everything and what an adorable little monkey!

Ok, I'll definately work on a tute then. Nobody should be scared to repurpose an old tee for their kid, it's SUPER easy!

Ah, thanks. She just turned 3 and she's the light (and the terror) of our lives. She's very fun, and fun to dress too! I didn't make a lot of clothes for my little boy, just stencilled t's so it's great to have a girl to create adorable dresses and such for.

Wow! That really is SO many adorable dresses! I love the first picture, she looks like a demure little princess that's about to go climb trees. Impressive.

yay for a tute! i think i'm most puzzled by things like the neckline and sleeves...i get reusing the bottom hem, sleeve hems, etc., but trying to figure out altering the top to fit makes my eye twitch Wink

I'm working on it! For the current craftster challenge, this will be my first time entering anything so wish me luck! I'll post the link to the tute in here when it's up so y'all can find it and tell me what you think, if it makes sense to you, if it needs more info, etc. It takes me a while to get pics loaded with my dial up connection but I'll try to use as many as I can to make it crystal.
