I love having a new baby, I've been able to make heaps of things from all the little bits and pieces I've had lying around for ages.  Although these little tops were made from some business shirts my husband put in the charity shop bag, I've put them in this general clothing section, rather than the reconstructed clothing section, because the integrity of the original shirts is gone, I basically just farmed them for fabric.

As I'm a newbie, craftster won't let me post pictures yet, but you can check them out here


I can see myself making heaps of these, they only take about forty five minutes to make from cutting the pieces to completion - love quick stuff! Smiley

very pretty -  I like the patterned yoke on the blue one especially - was that part of a shirt too, or did you find that elsewhere?

Thanks everyone for your kind comments! Cheesy

runciblespoon - no, the patterned fabric was a piece from my fabric stash (I wish I had enough to make a shirt for myself from it, it really is a lovely fabric!) Smiley

These are SO cute! Did you make the pattern yourself?

It is better to have crafted and failed then never to have crafted at all.
Yes, I am stalking the Toys and Playthings board. Thanks for noticing!
I'm cheating on Craftster with Pinterest. It's ok though. There's overlap.

Thanks, Tropic_Rose!  No, I didn't make the pattern myself.  Its a vintage pattern I found on ebay.  The original pattern has pleats through the front and back, but I replaced these with gathers so I didn't have to mark the pleats (I'm lazy!)
