Fun Dresses


Yesterday, I finished dresses for Rachel and Sarah.  


I found this darling Mary Englebreit material at the fabric outlet for $3.50 a yard and bought quite a bit thinking I would make jumpers for them out of it.  


But one day while shopping at Target, I saw these cute t-shirts that were very good price and they go with the fabric beautifully!


I remembered a dress my sister in law made for my niece Jill many years ago.  Basically you make a skirt gather it at the waist and attach it to the t-shirt!  These are soft, comfy dresses to run around and play in, or to sleep in.  


They like them and so do I.  I may try this again and make a few changes in how I do it, but it was fun and it is great to see the finished result.

  2. They really look like a skirt and top, but a little dress is so much easier for the girls. They turned out great!

  3. I've made MANY dresses like this for my daughters in the past. A polo style shirt works well, too.
