I have had this shirt in my closet for awhile....
I never wear it....
...but I couldn't part with it because I loved the detail around the collar.
....I decided why not try and make something for the girls out of it!
I mainly wanted to get a dress for S from it. I had also seen some cute t-shirt sleeve headbands in blogworld, so I thought I would make one of those for T if I had enough (which I definitely did). I even have enough left over to make T a skirt or I was also thinking of using the material to make ruffles to put on a onesie, which would you do?
Anyways, here is what it looks like cut up and planned out:
After some improvising, Here is the Dress!
It is really cute on, I am so happy with how it turned out!
S LOVES dresses right now! Every dress is a 'princess dress',haha.
And here is the headband:
The headband base is the strip labeled in the picture above and then I just stretched it enough so that it fit around her head without being too tight.
I made the rose from the cuffs of the shirt and the leaf from scraps.
I then hotglued 3 gems in the center to add some bling.
So what do you think, should I do a skirt to match or a ruffled/embellished onesie??
I have been going back and forth for awhile and can't make up my mind, so help me out.
Anyways I think it's a pretty darn good use of an old shirt of mine! One shirt into two outfits for my girls with zero cost....works for me!
