I saw some super cute little girl dresses in a store the other day that I felt I could copy fairly easily. Why buy when you can make it for for a fraction of the cost, right? When I was little, my mom made me "shirt dresses" to play in, and I loved them. The dresses I saw reminded me of them, only they were a tad more fashionable than the ones I wore. (no offense mom!)
I have a couple nieces with birthday's coming up, so I thought I'd give these a whirl for presents. I purchased a few plain, inexpensive tee shirts at Walmart to use as my base. I made one for my own munchkin first for practise. They were a little more tedious than I anticipated, but the finished result was worth the work.
These will be perfect for summer. I plan on making a less fluffy version of the skirt for myself for summer. I really enjoyed how this project stretched me a little and taught me how to do something I'd never tried before.
