Up-cycled Girls Dress - Bed Sheet & Ladies Skirt
Love this dress! In it's former life, it was a bed sheet and a ladies skirt, total cost: $2. Love up-cycling! I used one of Rebekah's dresses as a pattern for the top (an old blue knit bed sheet). It was a jumper, so I had to wing the sleeves. I made them much bigger than I should have. I thought it would be a complete flop until she put it on. I call them butterfly sleeves! I joined the bodice and the skirt together, no hemming necessary. It needed a tie, so I pulled out some wide pink ribbon from my stash. I think this dress will grow with her and hopefully she'll get two summers out of it!
