soooooo cute! i can hardly stand how cute it is. cute cute cute. i've been doing my best to avoid being bitten by the shirring bug (new things... very scary), but this one might get me to give it a try. congrats on the great job!

how clever to use socks! i never would have thought of that. i agree zipper would have been a pain to deal with. great job! can't wait to see the button down.

just curious - what does the text on the back say anyway?
343  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Old tee to cute lil' dress (somewhat Image Heavy) on: May 04, 2007 03:56:17 PM
First, a million thanks to vegbee for the inspiring tutorial! (Unable to resist the urge to complicate things for myself, I attempted something a little different, but without vegbee's tut, i would have been lost.) This is my first recon, and i fear my ambition exceeds my knowledge/skill at this point (that, and i have a lot to learn about sewing stretch fabrics!) but, overall, i'm pretty dang happy with how it turned out!

I recently unearthed a box full of my old tees and rather fortuitously discovered Craftster soon after. I knew immediately what had to be done. This shirt was destined to be the first one sacrificed due to its cringe-factor. Not that the sentiment is so wrong (gender stereotypes are bad blah blah blah), but i'm a lot more mellow about that stuff than i used to be. Plus, the art on the back pretty much sucks. (I'm pretty sure the only time I've worn this in the last decade or so was during a bathroom scrubdown or other equally fun task - that would explain some of the weird discolored spots.) Anyway, i figured it would be used for practice. Who knew it could become something so cute? yay!


the front is not sooooo bad

back "gender propaganda" art... eeeek!

The Dress...

dress front. cross neck, based on a couple of Old Navy dresses the schmoo is rapidly outgrowing and a $uper cute Glug Baby dress i saw online. i was kind of sad to lose the girl on the shirt front - she was the only thing the shirt had goin' for it, but she had to go for the greater good. there just wasn't enough fabric to keep her intact AND avoid using the stuff on the shirt back. I did have to use some stuff from the back, but at least i got to use the part with the little tiny skull. heeee.

dress back. the black is cut from another tee. i also sewed a little flower onto it because it seemed like it needed something.

Action Shots!
(in the neighbor's driveway. like she can't run around and be cute in front of our own house? whatever. i can only hope someday she'll be posing like vegbee's monkey!)

cute even with the paci! you've gotta love the Walmart $1/yd stuff. my daughter has been dragging around some $1 Winnie-the-Pooh fabric from Walmart and wrapping it around herself. i really need to make her a cute little dress like this.

i agree on the hat as well. i see how it was totally necessary. Smiley too cute.
346  CLOTHING / Clothing for Kids: Completed Projects / Re: halter dress for my lil one on: May 04, 2007 03:47:53 PM
