Another Dress

On my day off from all electronic devices, I made another dress. Well, kind of, anyways. I got the idea from another blog, of course.... here is her link, her stuff is amazing and so inspiring.
So I went to work yesterday, going through Peanut's clothes that I had put away already because they were too small. It seems that she didn't get to wear much of her 18-months clothes.... I found a t-shirt that was way too short, but not too small yet. It also had a stain on the tummy area - perfect to be cut and remodeled into a dress. So I cut it up a bit, made a skirt by scratch, even with pleas - can you tell that I am proud of myself!?! And then I sewed them both together, added a ribbon and voila:
 And here is my model, in a much happier mood today. She saw the shirt-dress this morning and actually wanted to wear it right away. So I let her, even though the skirt material was not washed yet... argh!
