Re-Fashion

I love craft blogs. I don't think that I am a very crafty or creative person, so I love that people are willing to share their crafty ideas with the world. It helps uncreative people like me feel like we can do creative things (even if we are using other people's ideas). Lately I've noticed a big trend among craft bloggers has been re-fashioning. It is so cool that people can make something new and beautiful from old pieces of clothing. I came across the idea of making a dress from a shirt the other day and I decided that I had to try it. I didn't follow Make it and Love it's instructions exactly but I used the same concept. I love how my dress turned out, and it was so easy to make! Yippee for cute, easy projects!
This is what I did:
I took this shirt......and this little girls sized extra large skirt......and made this dress!Front view:Back view:Love the ruffles on the shirt!

Oh my goodness, that dress is fantastic! How adorable. I love your choice of colors. And from what I've seen of pictures on your blog, I definitely think you can count yourself as crafty.

What a good idea! I'm totally going to try that. Oh, and you are TOTALLY crafty, by the way. If it wasn't for you, I don't think I would have ever learned to sew. I MISS YOU! (not just for the craftiness, of course)
