But this year she shot up in height and the dress was nearly a top. She could have worn it as it was with jeans or leggings but instead I went for a simple transformation. I measured her first and then cut off the top part of the dress and made a skirt out of the longest piece. I then took little sections of the fabric and added introduced a second out of my fabric scrap pile to make a matching t-shirt. I used bondaweb to attach the circles of fabric and sewed around them.
Now she has an outfit that will be worn this year and hopefully the next. And the fabric is such excellent quality I have no doubt it will look as good as new!
I'll be doing a lot more of this in the future.
Have a great weekend,
