One of my favorite projects is to turn little girls dresses into skirts
for myself. And aprons.
I usually get them dirt cheap at car boot sales, that way I haven't
wasted money if I fail.
Here's some pictures of what I've made.
I wish I'd taken before and after pictures on all these projects...
I made the heart pockets myself.
I wanted a 50's house wife look to it.
Cute apron, I made the heart pocket myself.
(I go for dresses from 6-9 years.)
Okay, here's a quick "tutorial" for a skirt.
I cut the dress off under the armpits, then I zic zac the edge so it won't fray.
Then I fold the "waistband" and stitch it onto the seam that's already between the
skirt and the waistband.
Then I close the open bit on the band and add a button and a button hole.
That's pretty much it.
For ONE heart pocket I just cut out two hearts (I use the top of the dress that I cut off.)
Zic zac the edges, then iron on interfacing on one of the hearts, stitch the hearts
together and add lace or ric rac.
Sorry for the awful tutorial but English isn't my first language and I'm not very
good at describing things.
For next time I might do a picture tutorial.
