I decided to make myself an Easter dress this year as well as the girls.
I had this old maternity dress sitting in my closet. A hand-me-down from a friend, I had never worn it with either pregnancy ( not really flattering, more frumpy then anything), so I decided to cut it up!
I cut off the sleeves and added pleats around the whole thing (I never measured because I intend it to be worn with a belt). I then used the sleeve material to cut long oval'ish' shapes which I folded in half and pinned into place on one shoulder.
I didn't do any hemming since it was t-shirt material so that was the extent of my altering. Here is the finished product:
Like I said in this post, I don't really enjoy self fashion-portraits and I forgot to get someone to take one of me in the dress on Easter (silly me).
Anyways here is the before and after:
I also had enough fabric leftover to make two of these headbands:
Cute huh? I mean the headband, but my baby is pretty cute too!
