Just over a month ago, we moved to Charleston SC.  While packing to move, I came across this amazing vintage "I Survived Hurricane Hugo" tee in my tshirt stash.  My husband and I picked it up years ago when we were thrifting.


When news of Hurricane Irene came, I remembered the Hurricane Hugo shirt and knew that I made to make my daughter a Hurricane Dress.

The pattern is the Sienna Dress by Lil Blue Boo.  A few modifications include shorter sleeves and a lengthened dress.


All blue pieces of the dress are from the Hurricane Hugo shirt.  The dark green pieces are from an old Oakland Athletics tee of mine-- also thrifted, but too small now that I am a mom!


I love the dress and my daughter does, too.  She can dance in it, and that's one of her main requirements.

By the way-- no hurricane damage here.  Hope you survived the storm as well as we did.

I am loving that dress! So adorable! (And my daughter also does the dance check with new clothes. Can't wear something you can't dance in!)
