My daughter managed to stain this dress the very first time she wore it.   Sad

When the stain refused to come out, instead of dumping it, I got a little creative.
I deconstructed it, replaced the top half with a white shirt and added the sleeve ruffles from the original dress to make it look more "complete".

The project took about 15 minutes in total.   My daughter (and I) couldn't be happier!!

If interested, you can read the details on how I did this on my blog here: http://sewplicity.blogspot.com/2012/05/mix-and-match-outfit-15-minute-fix.html

I love it!  I think it's much cuter the way you did it.  Nice job.
