Turn a woman's skirt into a little girl's dress
I found this skirt at the thrift store and I loved the fabric. Cute little beach balls all over it. Since it didn't fit me I decided I would make my little girl a dress from it.
I first measured the width across my little girls chest and then cut off the excess fabric from the sides. The skirt buttoned up on the side, so I repositioned the buttons to the middle before I cut so the dress will be able to button up the back.
Then with the right sides pinned together I sewed up each side.
So now it still looks like a skirt, just smaller.
I took the left over fabric I cut off earlier and cut two strips. Then folded both sides in middle and then over again.
I then sewed up both side of the straps and attached them to the dress. Then you're done!
I added a few buttons to the front. I really like the way it turned out. She is all ready for the Summer!! Isn't she cute!!
